"All were asked if they would vote to impeach President Trump. Only Washburne said he would definitely vote yes."
[Quote from Fred Snowflack, Insider NJ, "2018 Kickoff: 11th Congressional District Candidates Joust for a Shot at Frelinghuysen," November 30, 2017.]
In drafting the 1787 United States Constitution, our Founding Fathers anticipated that we would have a rogue President from time to time as they had experience dealing with rogue kings. They purposely established a three branch government with checks and balances. The drafters of the Constitution assigned Congress the task of being the check on a rogue President.
It is clear that President Trump lacks any recognizable moral compass and has engaged in a pattern of deceit and obstruction of justice that needs to be stopped. The current Congressman from New Jersey's 11th District refuses to fulfill his Constitutional duties by speaking out and being a check on this rogue President. If elected to Congress, I will speak out and hold President Trump accountable for his often dangerous, unethical, and illegal behavior.

In studying politics for most of my adult life, I am concerned about the role money plays in American elections. I hope to act differently during this campaign. In that regard, I do not seek and I will not accept any money donations of any amount to my campaign during the Primary season. We are instead relying on social media to get our message out to the voters. We, therefore, respectfully request your help by sharing this page and my campaign posts on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media venues with your friends. Thank you!
