Why can’t we all just get along?

The Democratic Congressional Committee wants five New Jersey GOP Congressmen to return $92,621 in campaign contributions from Tom DeLay, the House Majority Leader who was indicted yesterday. Last week, Mercer County Democrats called on the Mercer Republicans and County Clerk Cathy DiCostanzo to give back all past donations from Harry Parkin, who served as Bob Prunetti’s Chief of Staff and was convicted on federal corruption charges earlier this year. The GOP returned the volley by telling the Democrats to give back money from their from felon/donor Charles Kushner. One strategist, who asked that his party not be identified, makes a good point: “You can’t run a campaign in New Jersey without taking money from people who might get indicted somewhere down the line.”
