Beach attacks insurgent candidates

Camden County Democratic Chairman James Beach is putting resources behind a fight of activist Democratic candidates challenging county-backed office-seekers.

Beach, who is also a state Senator in the sixth legislative district, blasted members of the insurgent slate in a press release Friday that also announced the creation of a website fielding attacks on those candidates.

The site, CamdenCountyProgressiveDems.com, hosts attacks on the activist candidates, many of whom have already been tossed from the ballot following successful challenges to their nominating petitions.

Beach called former Freeholder candidates Jennifer O’Donnell and Jerome Taylor Trump Republicans, claiming the two were masquerading as Democrats, also noting a conviction on gun charges made against Taylor.

O’Donnell and Taylor were removed from the ballot earlier this month after a judge found some of the signatures on their nominating petitions were fraudulent.

Beach highlighted an aggravated assault conviction of Camden City Council candidate Vida Neil Rosiji and claimed council candidate Vance Bowman was the right-hand man of former Camden Councilman Ali Sloan-El, who served 15 months in prison for bribery charges.
