Steve Lonegan just called Josh Gottheimer a ballerina.
The former Bogota mayor accused Gottheimer of having a “total lack of substance or even the smallest of ideas.” He said the freshman Democratic congressman dances around issues “like a ballerina.”
“It is disturbing to watch a politician talk for seven minutes and say nothing,” said Lonegan, one of two Republicans vying for the chance to challenge Gottheimer in the general election. “Sort of like out of a comedy, but not funny in the shadow of the issue of school violence we are trying to resolve. Protecting our kids from the next would-be school shooter won’t be solved by Josh Gottheimer’s virtue signaling.”
