Ramapo College Professor Murray Sabrin may not be the best messenger for an attack on GOP U.S. Senate candidate Anne Evans Estabrook’s Republican credentials. In a statement released today, Sabrin accused Estabrook of “speaking out of both sides of her checkbook” by making past campaign contributions to Democratic candidates, including Bob Menendez for Congress, John Kerry for President, Linda Stender for State Assembly, and the New Jersey Democratic State Committee.
That’s an interesting message from Sabrin, the 1997 Libertarian candidate for Governor and the Chairman of Ron Paul’s New Jersey presidential campaign. In an October 2004 Op-Ed, Sabrin wrote that he refused to support George W. Bush for re-election, saying ” a second Bush term the welfare-warfare state would not be reduced. Therefore I cannot support a president who I thought would promote the limited government agenda I have been supporting and defending for more than three decades.”
“I would not put my head in the oven if John Kerry is elected president on November 2nd,” Sabrin wrote.
Editor’s note: After this item was posted, Dr. Sabrin issued the following statement –
“What is Anne’s excuse for donating thousands of dollars to Liberal Democrats running against Republicans in New Jersey? Why won’t she release the complete list of the ‘hundreds of thousands of dollars’ of donations to Republicans? I did not vote for Senator John Kerry for President and I did not give Senator John Kerry any donations. Anne Estabrook cannot make the same statement.”
