Democrats Run Faux Tea Party Candidate

The plan was to siphon off at least 5% of conservative voters from Republican Jon Runyan in New Jersey’s 3rd congressional district.

Congressman John Adler’s campaign and the Camden County Democratic Committee recruited “”NJ Tea Party” candidate Peter DeStefano to confuse conservative voters and hurt Adler’s Republican challenger this fall, Democratic operatives say.

It may not be illegal, but it sure is not an ethical thing to do. Then again, no one has ever accused Democrats of having high moral or ethical standards, nor the willingness to ‘drain the swamp.’
