Democrat candidate for Congress, Amy Kennedy, has now endorsed the defunding of police. The announcement came during an online interview conducted by a member of the Atlantic City NAACP.
Amy Kennedy says: “There’s a lot of merit to what we’re hearing around the country when we talk about how we should be reallocating funds to make healthy communities”.
Kennedy will try to unseat incumbent Republican Jeff Van Drew in the upcoming November election.
From New Jersey Globe: The Callaway-controlled Atlantic City Democratic organization is backing Amy Kennedy against Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-Dennis) in New Jersey’s 2nd district.
Reports suggest that Amy Kennedy enjoyed support from Craig Callaway.
Callaway once plead guilty to accepting a $10,000 cash bribe for an undercover FBI agent and for his role in blackmailing a rival Atlantic City council colleague.
“Through hushed conversations by county committee members, it was widely understood that the Kennedy campaign paid the Callaway organization over $100,000 while fully understanding his criminal past and unsavory tactics”.
