Skip to comments.Welle’s (D) Bogus Town Hall Meeting in Jackson (Dem rigs Town Hall meeting in New Jersey)

Josh Welle, the Democrat running against Congressman Chris Smith in the 4th congressional district, held a campaign event, dubbed a town hall meeting, in Jackson on Thursday night that appeared to be designed to capture footage for television commercials, rather than to hear from the people of Jackson, as advertised.
Rather than the free wheeling give and take of town hall meetings New Jersey residents are accustomed to, like those of former Governor Chris Christie, and the ObamaCare town halls held by Congressman Frank Pallone and Rush Holt in 2010, Welles event featured pre-screened questions read by a moderator. The person who submitted the question was instructed to stand (for the video cameras) while Welle delivered prepared answers.
Room dividers cut the meeting hall in half which created the illusion of a full house. There were roughly 100 attendees in the room that could hold over 300. Most in attendance appeared to be supporters that Welle already knew. Few were from Jackson. The candidate thanked one questioner for coming from Little Silver and another from Belmar. The final question came from a Brick resident (3rd congressional district.) Welle handled 8 pre-screened questions, some with the assistance of flash cards handed to him by the moderator after she read the question.
Robyn Gedrich, a millennial Democrat politician from Brick, which is in the 3rd congressional district, introduced the candidate and his wife, Angela. Gedrich gained national exposure in 2016 when she was suspended from the hook up app, Tinder, for using the platform to recruit Bernie Sanders volunteers instead of casual sex partners.

This is what our RINO John McCain did in AZ, making many Republicans realize they’d been hoodwinked.
Woops, wrong posted to wrong thread.
Then I won’t waste time
hunting the ‘right’ thread
to tell you to give it a break.
OK, well thanks for letting me know anyway.
“Democrats are so desperate they have to rig a town hall in New Jersey!”
Actually, they’re just SMART and play by different rules. They’re not about to allow themselves to get ambushed or embarrassed the way Republicans do.
We should LEARN from them, but other than Trump, we simply DO NOT.
