Call it a case of strange bedfellows.
Florence Sabrin, who is running as a rebel Republican freeholder candidate on the slate headed up by her husband, U.S. Senate candidate Murray Sabrin, is fending off a petition challenge in court today along with her running mate, Paul Mladjenovic.
But representing the two candidates, who are running under the slogan “Constitutional Republicans Protecting the Liberty,” is Bergen County Democratic Organization counsel Dennis Oury.
Oury is closely aligned with BCDO Chairman Joe Ferriero, but has worked with Republicans like Steve Lonegan in the past by threatening to file a joint lawsuit against pay-to-play legislation.
The complaint was filed by Bergen County Republican committeeman Gary Berner.
Sabrin spokesman George Ajjan could not immediately be reached for comment.
Democratic Freeholder incumbents David Ganz and Bernadette McPherson are also in court today to fend off a petition signature challenge from the rival Democratic group Real Bergen Democrats.
It’s unclear whether Oury is also representing Ganz and McPherson.
