Armstead Complaint Against Scutari Dismissed for Lacking Probable Cause

NJ's Joint Legislative Committee on Ethical Standards dismissed a complaint filed by Linden Mayor Derek Armstead against state Senator Nick Scutari. The complaint alleged that a Scutari ally had intimidated Armstead's allies, tried to deny their civil rights and attempted to force them out of a Democratic County Committee race.

The Joint Legislative Committee on Ethical Standards tossed a complaint filed by Linden Mayor Derek Armstead against state Senator Nick Scutari (D-22).

Armstead said an ally of Scutari – attorney Mark Rosen – had intimidated the mayor’s allies and sought to deny their civil rights, attempting to force them out of a Democratic County Committee race.

Counsel recommended to the committee that the alleged incident did not rise to the level of an ethics violation. The committee accepted his advice and unanimously voted to dismiss the matter.
