Frank Pallotta Says Gottheimer and Murphy Despise Law & Order

October 8, 2020

According to NJ.com, Gov. Phil Murphy plans to sign a bill releasing thousands of criminals from jail on November 4th, the day after Election Day.  

Frank Pallotta, businessman and Republican candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 5th District, released the following statement: 

“Our Congressman, Josh Gottheimer is clearly taking a hard stance against Law & Order and against the people of my district. Let’s take a look at the facts: 

1. Josh Gottheimer voted to allow cashless bail for dangerous criminals.

2. Josh Gottheimer voted against $600 million in funding for law enforcement. 

3. Josh Gottheimer co-sponsored HR7120, which removes legal protections from police officers, exposing them to criminal charges for simply doing their jobs. 

4. Josh Gottheimer remains silent while his buddy, Phil Murphy, plans to release criminals from our jails, and let them back into our cities the day after the election.” 

Pallotta continued, “By remaining silent on this reckless, dangerous plan by Gov. Murphy, Josh Gottheimer is enabling crime to flood our streets and making it known that he is 100% anti-police and pro-crime, with no backbone. Knocking almost a year off these criminals’ sentences sends a clear message to criminals that they will not be held accountable for their actions.”
