Gooch to Pallone: sign the Iran letter

GOP challenger Diane Gooch wants U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-Long Branch) to sent a message to Iran that the United States will impose sanctions if they continue to develop a nuclear weapons program.

But Pallone already signed the letter.

“I believe that it is the responsibility of Congress to urge the President to utilize his authority and I am disappointed that Congressman Pallone has yet to band with 281 of his fellow Members of Congress – including 10 from New Jersey – in standing up to Iran and its megalomaniac dictator,” said Gooch, a newspaper publisher seeking the Republican nomination to challenge Pallone.

Which is why Pallone signed the letter, say his allies.
