ATLANTIC CITY – He showed up with olive branch intentions and instead got the door.
That’s what happened when Assemblyman Parker Space (R-24) – sporting a baseball cap – went to the Bernadette McPherson/Colleen Mahr event at the Irish Pub.
“He was asked to leave,” a source told InsiderNJ. “I definitely saw him there and I am reliably informed he was asked to leave.”
Democrats tried to blow Space into a continually debilitating story earlier this year when he burnished a photo of himself in front of a Confederate Flag at a Hank Williams, Jr. concert.
A second source told InsiderNJ that the powers that be asked him to leave not because he posed with the flag, but because they thought he was a guy mooching free booze. Former Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose told InsiderNJ that no one asked Space to leave. She was with him and it didn’t happen, she said.
