A Republican who wants to represent Trenton in the U.S. House of Representatives thinks that embattled Trenton Councilwoman Robin Vaughn ought to resign after an “anti-gay temper tantrum” aimed at the city’s openly gay mayor, Reed Gusciora.
“Can someone please explain why, in the great city of Trenton, Councilwoman Robin Vaughn is still holding public office?” asked Old Bridge Councilman Mark Razzoli, who is challenging Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Ewing) in New Jersey’s 12th district.
Razzoli smacked Vaughn’s “hate-filled, vile commentary that clearly speaks her truth” and pointed out to her recent defense of anti-Semitics statements made by a colleague last yea.r
“The fabric of New Jersey communities is rich with diversity and nothing less than inclusiveness will be tolerated,” he said. “Anyone who exhibits an obvious prejudice toward our citizens for their religious beliefs or sexual orientation, has no place in public office.”
The GOP candidate believes Trenton “should not and cannot condone this type of hate speech, especially from a public servant.”
“For an elected official to perpetuate an already flippant culture of sexual abuse, anti-Semitism, and anti-gay sentiment is unconscionable, and I call on Ms. Vaughn to resign her position,” Razzoli stated.
