Zimmer ‘outraged’ over Lautenberg’s Springsteen fundraiser

Calling a published report that Democrat Frank Lautenberg used political connections to buy 40 premium tickets to a Bruce Springsteen concert for $108 and resell them to campaign donors for $1,500 “an outrage”, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dick Zimmer wants the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority to give him forty equivalent seats to distribute to “real Springsteen fans at face value, rather than fat cat political contributors.”

“Bruce said, ‘it’s hard to be a saint in the city,’ and apparently it’s not so easy to be a saint after 24 years in the Senate either,” said Ken Kurson, a spokesman for the Zimmer campaign.
