Lafayette taxpayer Josh Aikens called out the New Jersey Herald for reporting that Democrat Congressman Josh Gottheimer was in attendance at the annual Sussex County St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday. The parade was held in Newton, Gottheimer was the only elected official mentioned by name…but he was, in fact, a no show. Records from Gottheimer’s own social media indicates that he was in Teaneck at the time of the parade in Newton.
Aikens, who serves as the President of the Lafayette School Board, took to social media himself to complain about the Herald’s dishonest focus on Democrat Gottheimer, while other elected Republicans were ignored. In recent years, the Herald has openly promoted Democrat Gottheimer. This appears to be its editorial policy.
