Morris Democrats are calling for their Republican counterparts to censure Chatham Councilman Peter Hoffman over anti-Muslim posts he made to social media.
“Chatham Borough residents deserve better than a Councilman who sees our Muslim neighbors as ‘scum’ and ‘beasts,’” Morris Democratic Chairman Chip Robinson said.
Hoffman came under fire after the New Jersey branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations publicized the councilman’s social media posts along with a call for his party to disavow him
“Islam is a sick, backward faith practiced by low life scum,” Hoffman wrote. And later, “Until the “moderate” Muslims rein in their sick brethren and stop this type of behavior, Islam will always be the religion of beasts in my mind.”
Hoffman has since apologized for the comments
