The Burlington Democratic Chairman wants Republican Nancy Whatley-Griffin to swear that she isn’t runing for State Assembly just so she can get a judgeship down the road.
“It’s simple, all she has to do is sign this affidavit and prove to the taxpayers of Burlington County that she has not agreed to run for office in exchange for a lucrative political appointment,” said Richard Perr, the Democratic leader. “The Burlco Republicans have been engaged in something-for-something politics for years. It’s time for Whatley-Griffin to stand against this deeply rooted corruption and prove that Judgeships are not for sale. If she refuses to sign this affidavit her silence will confirm that she has boarded the sinking Burlco GOP ship.”
Whatley-Griffin, a Willingboro attorney, and former Philadelphia Flyers star Brian Propp are challenging Democratic Assemblymen Herbert Conaway and Jack Conners in the 7th district.
