Schuck hired kid named Norcross to work in legislative office

One bit of trivia regarding Assemblyman Ernest Schuck, the former Camden County legislator who passed away over the weekend: one of his legislative aides during his final term in the State Assembly was a young political operative with some promise – George Norcross. Schuck's defeat in the 1981 Democratic State Senate primary against fellow Assemblyman Walter Rand was perhaps the last time Norcross backed the losing candidate in a legislative primary.

Schuck and Rand were facing off for the seat of State Sen. Angelo Errichetti, the Mayor of Camden, who was indicted and later convicted in the Abscam scandal that also ended the political career of four-term U.S. Senator Harrison Williams.
