Mount Holly, October 4, 2018 – “Today’s Burlington County Times story revealing thatDemocratic County Chairman Joe Andl, as well as incumbent Freeholders Tom Pullion and Balvir Singh, knew that there may be serious domestic issues in George Youngkin’s past and chose not to fully investigate them, ultimately ignoring the warnings of potential Democratic candidate Kathryn McLaughlin, is unconscionable,” said Gibbs and Hughes in a joint statement.
“In the era of “MeToo’, the decision by Chairman Andl and Freeholders Pullion and Singh to move forward with the Youngkin candidacy in the face of legitimate concerns by women in their own party is telling. Moreover, it’s deeply disappointing that Joanne Schwartz and Felicia Hopson chose to put their own political and financial interests ahead of what is right for women by burying their heads in the sand on the concerns about Youngkin’s past, and then refusing to immediately disavow his candidacy after the BCT story broke.”
