Former Cresskill Councilman John McCann is targeting Rep. Josh Gottheimer over a fundraising email the latter appears to have sent in September following the appearance of anti-Semitic graffiti on the garage door of a Christian family in Hampton.
The issue came up at a debate Monday night.
Gottheimer told reporters that such a letter did not come from his campaign, though an email dated Sept. 27 suggets otherwise.
“The simple fact, Josh Gottheimer is an opportunistic liar who has now been caught in his deceit. Gottheimer’s behavior and lies are disgusting,” McCann said. “Gottheimer was taught well by his mentors Bill and Hillary Clinton and by his ally Bob Menendez. Lie when it is convenient and use any situation to your personal advantage.”attachment 4
