via Fred Snowflack, and from NJ-11 Democrats, we find out what went down at Lenape Valley High School in Stanhope last week.
The congressman was having a town hall meeting. And “about five people” – that’s “5” – showed up there with signs encouraging Frelinghuysen to debate his Democratic opponent, Doug Herbert.
They weren’t making noise, weren’t even holding the signs up so everybody could see them. But they were asked to leave. And they said no. So the police were called, and they and their signs were ejected. Mind you, a constituent hand-delivered an invitation to a debate her group – Sparta Unites for our Schools – is having. I can see how that would be unnerving.
What’s Frelinghuysen so afraid of? Doesn’t he know signs don’t win elections?
