Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni announced the indictment by grand jury of Dwayne Horner, 45, of Little Elm, Texas, who was the campaign manager for Leigh Ann Bellew, a Tea Party-backed challenger to Kyrillos.
Hedge Fund manager George Hall’s $12 million Rumson mansion or more precisely, a federal tax loophole that grants people in Hall’s field of work a sweet income-tax bargain is harshing the mellow for kayaker and Star-Ledger video commentator Brian Donohue.
In Monday’s edition of Ledger Live, host Donohue takes aim at the tax loophole, and finds a Tea Party leader who agrees with him that the break doesn’t make sense, even though the national Tea Party has been blocking closure of the loophole.
The clip also features video from the raucous Tea Party shoutdown of Congressman Frank Pallone and a woman in a wheelchair at a town hall meeting held at the Red Bank Middle School in September, 2009.
Tea Party-backed GOP congressional hopeful Anna Little‘s camp is charging incumbent Frank Pallone with ducking a faceoff on healthcare scheduled for tonight in Red Bank, the Star-Ledger reports.
Both Pallone’s camp and the sponsor of the event claim, however, that there was to be no debate, and the Pallone had never committed to attend. He cites a scheduling conflict.
Watching a poorly funded Tea Party-approved candidate throw a scare into an opponent this week, Fair Haven Mayor Mike Halfacre kinda wishes he’d stayed in the GOP primary race in the Congressional 12th District, he tells PolitickerNJ.
But after seeing David Corsi of Oceanport garner 46 percent of the primary vote Tuesday on just $5,000 raised versus venture capitalist Scott Sipprelle‘s $640,000 warchest Halfacre rues not staying in the contest, writes Politicker’s Max Pizarro:
Asked if he regreted not running to the finish, particulalry after seeing Corsi’s victory by 768 votes in the Monmouth County portion of the district, Halfacre said, “Absolutely. I made a mistake. No one could have predicted this election result. If we had any idea the line would have been as weak as it was, we would have stayed in.”

Red Bank had a tea party of its own on Sunday, although it was far from the pot-banging, Palin-esque affairs of recent vintage.
This one was a retort to the Tea Party movement, and leading the party was Linda Chorney, a politically involved Bostonian who assembled some of her closest friends and strangers to shoot a video for her song, “The Teabag Party,” at NovelTeas on Bridge Avenue Sunday.
