State Sen. Kristin Corrado (R-Totowa) is asking the state’s top law enforcement official to investigate a recording of Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop for electioneering at a polling location on Tuesday.
The New Jersey Globe released video footage of Fulop speaking to a voter standing next to a voting machine, with audio of the mayor saying “vote yes.”
“Failure to act on this matter sends the message that electioneering is now permitted in polling sites, Corrado wrote in a letter to Attorney General Gurbir Grewal.. “As I am sure you can appreciate, this is not the precedent that should be set for conduct as citizens exercise their right to vote without pressure.
Corrado, a former Passaic County Clerk, said that she was deeply concerned about this blatant disregard of the law and the sanctity of a polling site.”
“The statute is clear,” Corrado said.Corrado to Grewal
