Westlake sentencing today; Holt returned money

During the 2006 campaign, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee regularly asked New Jersey Republicans to return campaign contributions from individuals or political action committees connected to lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Any chance they will call on Congressmen Frank Pallone and Rush Holt to return donations from developer Jack Westlake, a business partner of ex-Senate President John Lynch, who is expected to be sentenced today? Westlake also contributed heavily to Robert Menendez’s Senate and House campaigns, and to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee when Jon Corzine served as Chairman. Editor’s note: Holt contributed $3,000 to Boys & Girls Club of Trenton and CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children) in October 2006, soon after allegations against Westlake and Jack Morris became public. Pallone has not returned $7,800 from Westlake.
