Suleiman wants GOP to denounce Grossman

Points to the legend of John Carmen

A sexist joke by a Republican freeholder from Atlantic County led to his defeat last year by a political newcomer.

Now Democrats are hoping that comments made by GOP congressional candidate Seth Grossman about diversity might weaken the Republican ticket enough to help them oust some more incumbent freeholders.

Atlantic County Democratic Chairman Michael Suleiman today called on Republican Freeholders Frank Formica, Maureen Kern, and James Bertino, who are on the ballot this year, to denounce Grossman.

“You would think that the Atlantic County Republicans learned their lesson after Freeholder John Carman, but unfortunately they never cease to amaze me,” said Suleiman. “While some prominent Republicans have denounced Mr. Grossman’s stupid comments, there’s radio silence from the Republicans on the Freeholder Board. Are they more concerned with winning than doing the right thing?

John Carman was considered a safe bet for re-election last year before a social media post connected to the Women’s March went viral: “Will the woman’s protest be over in time for them to cook dinner?”  He was defeated by Democrat Ashley Bennett.

Suleiman pointed out that the Atlantic County Republicans posted on social media that they are “strong and unified.”
