Essex freeholder faces ELEC complaint

By David Wildstein, February 05 2020 10:19 am

Essex County Freeholder Tyshammie Cooper faces a three-count complaint from the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission that alleges she failed to report contributions to her 2018 primary campaign.

A former East Orange councilwoman, Cooper was elected freeholder in a 2018 special election to fill the seat left vacant when Britnee Timberlake resigned to take a seat in the State Assembly.

Copper faces a fine of up to $8,600, although ELEC generally reduces penalties if the candidate cooperates and files missing reports.
