Another local elected official in Jon Bramnick’s legislative district is voicing anger over a section on his law firm’s website suggesting that they were ready to discredit accusers when their client is charged with sexual assault.
“It is appalling that the sitting Minority Leader in the Assembly has made ‘discrediting’ victims of sexual assault a business model to enrich himself and his law firm,” said Summit Councilwoman Marjorie Fox, an attorney. “Certainly, everyone is entitled to legal representation but portraying sexual assault victims in a negative light to generate business for his law firm is reprehensible.”
Bramnick has since pulled the entire section on representing defendants in sexual assault cases from his website and told the New Jersey Globe that the language for his entire site is under review.
The Westfield Republican, who faces a tough race for re-election against Democrats Lisa Mandelblatt and Stacey Gunderman, has blamed an outside firm for creating the content.
