Howarth nameplates gone from minority caucus room

Bramnick doesn’t have ‘any idea’ what it’s about

Assemblyman Joe Howarth’s nametags have disappeared from the Assembly minority caucus room according to photos of the assemblyman’s desk and cubbyhole obtained by the New Jersey Globe.

It’s not clear what exactly that means.

Howarth, who was not present during Monday’s Assembly session did not respond to a call seeking comment made at 1:49 p.m.

Despite the broader haze, it’s clear that the decision wasn’t made by Assembly Republican leadership.

“I just heard that,” Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick said when asked about Howarth’s missing name plates. “I don’t have any idea.”

Assemblyman Ryan Peters and former Burlington County Sheriff Jean Stanfield beat Howarth in last week’s primaries, effectively ousting the two-term incumbent.

Howarth lost the support of the district’s Republican organizations after State Sen. Dawn Addiego defected to the Democratic party earlier this year.

Though Howarth has denied it, Republicans there believe the assemblyman also attempted to flip.
