NEWARK – Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-21) got in a dig on Hudson County tonight at Brendan Byrne’s birthday bash.
Russian leader Vladimir Putin banned Senate foreign Relations Committee Chairman U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) from Russia, Bramnick said.
Menendez retaliated by banning Putin from Hudson County.
“Putin was horrified because that’s where he learned how to run elections,” Bramnick cracked.
The minority leader later ragged on other high table dignitaries.
“McGreevy’s thinking ‘My scandal wasn’t that bad,’” Bramnick said. “Kean’s thinking, ‘I didn’t have a scandal, and I am still the most popular governor in New Jersey.’”
