The exodus of staffers in Rep. Jeff Van Drew’s office continues, including a former State Senate staffer who moved to Washington earlier this year, sources have told the New Jersey Globe.

Justin O’Leary, a former Wildwood Democratic Club president, had worked on Van Drew’s State Senate campaign and in his legislative office.  He went to Capitol Hill with Van Drew in January.

John Amenhauser, the Democratic State Committeeman from Cape May County, is expected to resign his part-time post as an aide to Van Drew sometime tomorrow.

Van Drew’s longtime chief of staff, Allison Murphy, will stay on. 

While it’s not immediately clear whether Murphy will switch her party registration, she resigned as Cape May’s Democratic State Committeewoman this morning.

Two of Murphy’s relatives will also continue working for the freshman congressman.

John Murphy, the chief of staff’s father, will keep his part-time job.  Melissa A. Murphy, the sister-in-law of the chief of staff, will remain as Van Drew’s Education Policy Director.

John Murphy is also resigning his seat as a Dennis Township Democratic Committeeman.

  1. Reads like a fair amount of political inbreeding going on here or just out and out patronizing for dollars paid for in taxpayer money?
