    Two GOP legislators make push to challenge special state grants Thursday, September 22, 2005 BY RICK HEPP Star-Ledger Staff Two Assembly Republicans yesterday announced an effort to mount a legal challenge against New Jersey officials they contend use politics as the only reason to award special state grants.

    Inept, see-no-evil Harvey should go Column by Charles Webster Assemblyman Sean Kean is daring to go where no other lawmaker has had the guts to go before - he’s drawing up articles of impeachment for our esteemed Attorney General Peter "See No Evil" Harvey. Kean says he has had it with See No Evil’s blindness to evil and his political antics with state homeland security grants is the absolute last straw. You know the story. Last month, it was reported that Democratic-controlled districts received $21.3 million, or 93 percent, of the money distributed through the state since 2002, while Republican...

    GOP seeks funding for security grants Wednesday, August 03, 2005 BY RICK HEPP Star-Ledger Staff Assembly Republicans called on acting Gov. Richard Codey yesterday to use $40 million from this year's budget for state homeland security equipment grants they said went unfunded for "political reasons." The Attorney General's Office doled out more than $8.3 million last year to towns so they could purchase first-responder equipment. But a Star-Ledger review of the list showed more than $7.8 million was awarded to towns in Democratic legislative districts while municipalities in Republican legislative districts got just $523,454. Minority Leader Alex DeCroce (R-Morris) said...
