Jack Ciattarelli Goes Full MAGA with Embrace of Far-Right Disinformation Group

 

NEWARK — Following right-wing propagandist James O’Keefe’s blatant harassment and physical intimidation of two female Murphy for Governor, NJDSC campaign staffers yesterday, Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli is showing his desperation by shamelessly throwing his support behind the disinformation schemes and stunts of the “political spying” organization, Project Veritas.

 

As the New York Times has reported, “Mr. O’Keefe and Project Veritas have a long history of releasing manipulated or selectively edited footage purporting to show illegal conduct by Democrats and liberal groups.”

 

Just one week from Election Day, this is a desperate attempt from a desperate candidate who has repeatedly aligned himself with the far-right in order to win support from Trump’s base, even headlining a “Stop the Steal Rally” and spreading dangerous conspiracy theories about lifesaving public health measures.

 

It should come as no surprise to New Jerseyans that Assemblyman Ciattarelli is once again embracing disinformation — his entire campaign has been a fact-free grift to lie to voters about his extreme positions. Rather than talking to voters about the issues that matter, time and again Ciattarelli has chosen the fringe over New Jersey values.

 

“Time and again, Assemblyman Ciattarelli has made demonstrably false and conspiratorial claims, and now he’s hit rock bottom by not condemning in the strongest possible terms the  dangerous tactics of a far-right extremist,” said Murphy for Governor Spokesman Jerrel Harvey. “Embracing Trump-style disinformation and intimidation tactics is completely disqualifying for any candidate running for Governor. New Jersey voters understand this and will reject Ciattarelli’s extremism.”
