Singh wants county chairs to apologize over condemnations of mailer that asked voters to cast second ballot

By Nikita Biryukov, July 01 2020 6:39 pm

Republican Senate candidate Hirsh Singh wants Republican chairs to apologize for attacking him over a mailer asking voters who backed rival candidate Rik Mehta to request and return duplicate ballots.

“Trying to steal our party’s nomination from President Trump was a blatant case of election fraud and the same people who attempted that coup are now trying to indulge in voter suppression,” Singh said. “The latest fraud is a ploy to distract from the fact that Rikin Mehta is a Democrat plant who will stop the Republican Resurgence in NJ. We are winning. It’s an unsuccessful orchestrated attempt to stop our momentum.”

Singh’s mailer drew calls for his resignation and condemnation from Camden County Chairman Rich Ambrosino, Essex County Chairman Al Barlas, Middlesex County Chairwoman Lucille Panos, Gloucester County Chairwoman Jacci Vigilante, Hunterdon County Chairman Pat Torpey, Salem County Chairwoman Linda DuBois and Burlington County Chairman Sean Earlen.

It also drew a cease and desist letter from Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who warned Singh that his mailer violated state and federal election law.
