Senate Democrats renew call for disclosure of fundraising group

Sen. Loretta Weinberg, (D-37), of Teaneck and Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, (D-15), of Trenton Thursday renewed their call for the fundraising group Center for A Better New Jersey to open its books to the public.

Three weeks ago, Weinberg, Watson Coleman and Assemblywoman Nellie Pou, (D-35), of Paterson called on the Republicans, in particular the GOP minority leaders Sen. Tom Kean Jr. and Assemblyman Alex DeCroce, to identify who was contributing funds to the GOP’s redistricting efforts.

At the time, Kean said the Republicans would comply fully with disclosure laws.

But the Democrats have regularly issued calls since then for immediate disclosure. “It appears that the Republicans’ belief in full transparency extends only to others, and not themselves,” Weinberg said in a release Thursday.
