Pull Down Those Shameful Ads, Jim!
Schundler campaign calls for end to senior scare tactics by McGreevey

(WEST ORANGE, OCTOBER 22)- Schundler for Governor campaign manager Bill Pascoe challenged the McGreevey campaign today to pull misleading radio ads that attack Mayor Bret Schundler’s plan to cut property taxes for senior citizens by fifty percent:

“Desperate candidates do desperate things. Jim McGreevey is now engaging in the worst kind of desperation -- he is using misleading campaign scare tactics to frighten and confuse New Jersey seniors. Jim’s campaign tactics are despicable, and quite frankly, he should be ashamed of himself. I personally call on Jim McGreevey to pull these misleading radio ads immediately.

“For almost a week now, Jim McGreevey has been running radio advertisements that even the Star-Ledger -- no friend of Republican candidates -- has judged to be misleading. Here’s what the Star-Ledger had to say about Jim McGreevey’s radio ad:

“‘It is highly questionable whether Schudler’s automated phone calls are a “scam” or “deceiving” or “misleading”…Schundler has not backed off his [senior property tax] promise…McGreevey’s argument that the money would be siphoned from public schools is also questionableMcGreevey’s reference to the Bergen Record…seems to be a partial misquote.’

“Jim McGreevey says he wants to ‘talk straight’ to the voters of New Jersey, but the Star-Ledger’s analysis of his latest ad reveals that his idea of ‘straight talk’ is just more ‘double talk’ from a tax-hiking, party-boss-answering, special-interest-catering-to career politician.

“If we can’t believe Jim McGreevey’s ads, then why should New Jersey voters believe him when he says he wants a government ‘that lives within its means’ instead of raising taxes again -- just like he did when he cast the deciding vote for Governor Florio’s $2.8 billion tax increase, the biggest tax increase in New Jersey history?”
