This suburban community some 30 miles southwest of New York City should be safe territory for Sen. Robert Torricelli as he seeks re-election this fall.
Nearly 60 percent of voters here, many of them white- collar moderates, went for the Democrat in his first Senate bid six years ago.

1st Option - Change his 1st name to Andrea and release his debut CD "The Senator Stings"
2nd Option - Hey he's Italian! If he can't sing then he must be able to cook. Change his first name to Emeril and the Food Channel will have "Emeril Torricelli's Green Dollar Salads " on the air in no time at all.
I guess Bill Bradley was considered honest... Although he was smart enough to know that his liberal philosophy was intellectually dishonest.
It's nice to see quotes from some New Jerseyans showing some indications that the Age of Clinton may have finally gone too far, even in NJ, home of the Sopranos. Here's hoping for a Forrester victory in November.
The new democrat techniques for hiding bribe taking are, of course, those used by Sen. Dashole and by Texas Sen. candidate, Ron Kirk. In both cases, bribes and all discussions of the "in exchange for" aspect of the payments are covered, not with the politician, but with his wife. The democrat politician never directly enters in to the bribe transaction (all though, he, of course, delivers the vote or influence or makes the decision that favors his wife's "customer"); his bag woman wife does everything. The beauty part is that the democrat politician then refuses to make any tax returns public. So the IRS knows about the bribe income but the voters do not.
It is a wonderful system and allows the weasel democrats to attack those who have earned great wealth while stealing great wealth, themselves. For obvious reasons, Torricelli's conversion to this standard democrat approach has not been widely covered in the press.
I hope this is what is happening. Left to normal dynamics of past elections, Torch will win even if he is down by 10 points due to the dead monkey business, and double voting.
Ebbs? You or I would be in prison.
Lapse, my eye. More like standard operating procedure. Did the Courier Post talk about Al Capone's ethics "lapse" when he was nailed for income tax evasion?
Let's analyze his "progressive"views on:
1. Gun Control. He strongly favors it. In other words, he believes that all law-abiding citizens should be denied their right to protect themselves which is guaranteed under the Second Amendment. He further believes that, if gun ownership were totally forbidden, all criminals would happily turn in their weapons to the local precinct and sing a rousing chorus of "Kumbaya" with the desk sergeant.
2. Abortion. He strongly favors it. Even partial-birth abortion is cool with him. After all, unlike gun ownership, the right to abortion is right there in The Constitution. Apparently, it was redacted in the copy I keep on my desk. (Note to voters: whatever your personal view on abortion, your Senator will not be able to challenge Roe v. Wade. That can only be done in the Supreme Court.)
3. The Environment. The democrats have demagogued this issue so much that now one must believe that they are for clean water and clean air and those wascally wepublicans are for dirty water and dirty air. Just because we don't allow the environmental whackos of the green movement to ride roughshod over our private property rights doesn't mean we enjoy drinking polluted water or breathing noxious fumes.
As a long-time resident of the Garden State, I hope justice will be done and Torricelli will be gone. What I hope for and what I am afraid will happen are diametrically opposite.
Hey Jim, you old cuss, a stupid mistake, eh? That's what all the prisoners in jail call what happened to them, too. You want we should turn 'em loose in YOUR neighborhood?
Jim MUST be a liefelong democRat, 'cause he sure got the talking points and immoral justification thing going good.
My prediction: Jersey WILL reelect this guy. You can't enlighten the stupid.
What we used to call bribery...
This would make a great bumper sticker! Not only is it impossible to enlighten them, but we have to let them vote, too. And it is unimaginable that a small business owner, of all people, would support a Dem. That is the ultimate in stupidity.
I hope the voters of New Jersey remember that a man's felonies are like cockroaches: For every one you see, there are a hundred you don't.
One who when he's bought, stays bought.
The man knows what his customers want.
