Frank Pallotta Issues Statement on Josh Gottheimer’s Endorsement of Mike Bloomberg for President

February 20, 2020

MAHWAH – Today, New Jersey District 5 Republican Congressional Candidate Frank Pallotta issued the following statement on Josh Gottheimer’s Endorsement of Mike Bloomberg for President:

“In his second attempt at a Presidential endorsement, Josh Gottheimer today joined New Jersey Democrats in selling out to billionaire Mike Bloomberg. Gottheimer has aligned himself with a corporate authoritarian who wants to tell us what to eat, what to drink, and what to think. He has pledged to raise taxes and has made dehumanizing and demoralizing comments about our minority communities, while belittling the small businesses and rural farmers who are the backbone of America.

Bloomberg has trampled on our Bill of Rights, and as his past words and actions have proven, would undo the historic criminal justice reforms enacted by President Trump. In the era of #MeToo, Mike Bloomberg has a documented history of sexual harassment in the companies he owns – kept quiet through the use of coercive Non-Disclosure Agreements. Here’s another example of Josh Gottheimer – much like his impeachment vote – promising to do one thing, only to embarrass our district in the end.”
