By David Wildstein, September 03 2019 6:00 pm

Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede has been charged with releasing the expunged criminal record of her Republican primary opponent, according to a Trentonian report.

Yaede allegedly provided documents of the 2001 arrest of Republican Dave Henderson to a blog that had been supportive of her campaign.  The intention release of expunged records is a disorderly persons offense in New Jersey.

Henderson had received the organization line for the June GOP primary, which Yaede won by 1,580 votes, 66%-34%.

The deadline to withdraw from the race is September 12, although New Jersey judges frequently extend that date.

Yaede is locked in a general election battle against Democrat Jeff Martin, the Council President.

The charges were brought by the Mercer County Prosecutor, the Trentonian reported.

Yaede did not immediately respond to a 5:40 PM message left at her campaign office.
