MacArthur slams Kim for Menendez ties

Congressman says Kim should denounce Dem Senator

By David Wildstein, August 07 2018 12:53 am

Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-Toms River) called on Democrat Andy Kim to publicly denounce U.S. Senator Bob Menendez’s involvement in his campaign for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd district.

“Andy Kim’s willingness to align himself with Bob Menendez and accept his help in this campaign is offensive to Democrats, Republicans and Independents who are sick and tired of government corruption and politicians who line their own pockets at our expense,” said MacArthur, who faces Kim in his bid for re-election to a third term in November.  “Today, Andy is accepting campaign help from someone who was indicted for bribery by President Obama’s Justice Department. Does Andy Kim disagree with the bipartisan Senate Ethics Committee finding that Bob Menendez broke federal law and took $1 million in illegal gifts? If not, he should have no problem denouncing Bob Menendez right now and immediately call on him to cancel tonight’s event in the Third District.”

Menendez held a tele-town hall with 3rd district voters tonight and is backing Kim, a former Obama White House aide, in his bid to unseat MacArthur.

That caused MacArthur to challenge Kim to say whether he agrees with the findings of the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee about Menendez.

“Tom MacArthur follows Donald Trump around Washington like a little lost puppy, so he lacks the authority to criticize anyone, especially a strong, competent, dedicated public servant like Andy Kim,” said Menendez campaign chairman Michael Soliman.

  1. This is rich, indeed. A man who votes 94% of the time to support the traitorous grifter in the White House is just pathetic.

    Tom MacArthur cannot run on his record…….so he makes personal attacks.

  2. Tom Mcarthur, why dont you make a deal and completely denounce Donald Trump? Publicly denounce him. Also what’s your opinion of Bob Hugin the crook who saved Russians Millions. #tomsafraud
