Bateman: Today’s Hypocrisy By Senate Democrats Proves Knapp is Right for the Job

Judiciary Committee member Senator Christopher “Kip” Bateman (R-Somerset) stated the following about the Senate Democrats’ attempt today to unseat Frederic Knapp as Morris County Prosecutor:

“Senate Democrats took hypocrisy to an unprecedented level with today’s attempt to unseat Acting Prosecutor Knapp by suspending Senate rules and treating elected legislators like children. They should be embarrassed by such childish conduct, which stems from their denial that New Jerseyans elected Christopher J. Christie as governor.

“My colleague Senator O’Toole’s comments must be emphasized: Democratic Governor McGreevey exercised exactly the same power that Governor Christie exercised with regard to prosecutorial appointments.

“If there was any non-political, legitimate reason for Mr. Knapp to be removed from serving the public, the majority party would have tried to prove so in a Judiciary Committee hearing.”

"New Jersey hasn’t heard the last of Brian Goldberg. Or maybe New Jersey will be hearing about him for the first time."
