AWESOME! N.J. Court Rules That Tea Party Can Go Ahead With Petition To Recall Democrat Senator Bob Menendez

Now this is what I call taking action. Two Tea Parties here in NJ are trying to have US Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) recalled because he votes for too much spending.

From NJ Online: A state appellate panel today ruled New Jersey's secretary of state must accept a petition a citizens group filed to recall U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez.

The court stayed with its decision to allow Menendez (D-N.J.) to appeal itsruling.
NJ Tea Parties United and the Sussex County Tea Party have said they want Menendez, (D-N.J.) recalled from office because he votes for too much government spending.

The case — which puts the state in the unusual position of arguing against its own law and calling part of its constitution unconstitutional — began last fall after then-Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells rejected the committee’s notice that it intended to begin a recall effort against Menendez. The removal process requires the secretary of state to approve such a notice before a recall committee can begin generating petitions.

After the notice is approved, the committee then must secure the signatures of 25 percent of registered voters of the affected district before a recall election can be held. There were 5.2 million registered voters in November, meaning the committee would have to secure 1.3 million signatures. READ MORE...
