Camden County Republican Chairman Rich Ambrosino called out “South Jersey women leaders” today. The CCGOP press release follows:

HADDON HEIGHTS – Camden County Republican Chairman Rich Ambrosino said it’s time for the same “South Jersey women leaders” who “denounced” former U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin “for staying silent as allegations of sexual assault” were made against then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh break their silence over disgraced former Assemblyman Arthur Barclay landing a new county job.

“Assemblywomen Pam Lampitt and Pat Egan Jones and Freeholders Carmen Rodriguez and Susan Shin-Angulo were eager to complain about Justice Kavanaugh and President Trump over allegations. Now, when we find out one of their own, Arthur Barclay, got a new county job after admitting to punching a woman they sit silent,” CCGOP Chairman Rich Ambrosino said. “Apparently, outrage only exists at allegations against Republicans and not admitted facts when it comes to one of their fellow machine Democrats.”

“Lampitt, Egan Jones, Rodriguez and Shin-Angulo claimed to be ‘South Jersey women leaders’ with the fake outrage they directed at Bob Hugin a year ago. Now, with an opportunity to actually lead they sit silent,” Ambrosino remarked.

Ambrosino continued, “It’s disappointing that, after calling themselves ‘leaders,’ Lampitt and Rodriguez, both up for re-election, have remained silent about a confessed girlfriend beater getting a new job in county government. I’m especially disheartened that Shin-Angulo is silent on the issue because she’s now running for mayor in Cherry Hill, the community in which I live.”

“As freeholders, Rodriguez and Shin-Angulo, take part in personnel decisions.” Ambrosino added, “It’s time for them to tell voters and county taxpayers why they are okay with a man who admitted to punching his girlfriend getting a new position in county government.”

“Barclay punched his girlfriend, then resigned from the Assembly for ‘health reasons.’” These are facts, not just allegations,” Ambrosino said, “Despite the punching and the health issue, Barclay was transferred to a new job. It’s time for these self-proclaimed leaders to lead, especially Freeholders Rodriguez and Shin-Angulo who can start by explaining the part they took in the decision to transfer Barclay to a new job. Assemblywomen Lampitt and Egan Jones and Freeholders Rodriguez and Shin-Angulo can show some leadership and join me in calling for Barclay to be fired from county government, because no man willing to punch a woman should be working for this county’s government.”
