Gopal Smears Christine Hanlon,

Claims defect in absentee ballot envelopes is intentional


Yes, Monmouth County still doesn’t have the absentee ballot envelopes right:


This happened to my daughter last June and yes, it is disappointing to see that the problem still hasn’t been fixed. ¬†But County Clerk Christine Hanlon’s office is taking steps to help absentee voters to be assured their votes are being counted.


To County Democratic Party chairman Vin Gopal though, it’s all part of some dark conspiracy to “intimidate” voters:


Of course I’m not defending the envelope screw up but for him to assert that this was intentional is really childish and stupid. ¬†Republicans, theoretically, are just as much victims of this problem as Democrats.

Except, notably,¬†in Belmar, where Gopal’s party seems to run an extremely “vigorous Vote By Mail program”.

    Always “watch” the election procedures. If results are not going “your” way (whichever way that may be) ask for a recount, cry foul, claim rigging, etc. It’s what “they” do. Ahem…politics stinks.

    And, dare I suggest it, vote for the two Republicans in Belmar. Things in this borough are too out of whack. Place is run by a bunch of donkeys.
