Recall movement shouldn’t frighten Menendez

U.S. Senator Robert Menendez shouldn’t lose much sleep over a group of Sussex County Tea Party members seeking a recall election to oust him from office.  On top of an extraordinarily complicated process, organizers would have to get 1,306,224 signatures from registered voters – 25% of the total registered voters statewide.  That’s not likely to happen.  Menendez has 40%-31% approval ratings, according to a June Quinnipiac University poll, and no United States Senator has ever been recalled from office.   But then again, Governor Jim Florio probably didn’t stress too much when a postal worker named John Budzash organized Hands Across New Jersey in 1990.
