The following was delivered to my home today. It was left inside my mailbox – a federal crime. Mr. Bill Whelan and Mr. Doug Long, it is time for you to call off your dogs and put your own party in order. I am pursuing legal action, I will NOT allow the Cumberland county Democratic Organization to intimidate me!
Here are the facts. Senator Jeff Van Drew, Freeholder candidates Bill Whelan, Tony Surace and James Dunkins hired Marcus Wilson for their GOTV effort. This website reported on the manifold discrepancies in the ballot applications that were submitted by Mr. Wilson.We also reported in the inadequate reporting of Wilson’s fee by Jeff Van Drew, and commented that it could possibly cause that money not to be reported accurately as taxable income.
For this, Doug Long, chair of the Cumberland County Democratic Party, with the full blessing of Bill Whelan, sued the independent websites for reporting this information. Their civil lawsuit was dismissed by them, with prejudice.
Now, the person they employed, Marcus Wilson, apparently is bringing the dirtiest of Atlantic City politics to Cumberland County. Voter ballot fraud is nothing, now they deposit a letter in a mailbox in violation of federal law. Doug Long has been silent, as has Whelan. Their silence speaks volumes – it simply proves to me that they know who is behind this rash of threats and intimidation, by by remaining silent, they condone these actions.
