REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP CALLS FOR SCHROEDER’S RESIGNATION AFTER ACCUSATIONS THAT HE WROTE $3.4M IN BAD CHECKS
After having been accused of running a “check kiting” scheme in August, Save Jerseyans, Assemblyman Bob Schroeder (R-Bergen) was indicted today on three criminal counts; Schroeder allegedly wrote millions of dollars worth of bad checks.
Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick (R-Union) responded to the news by calling for Schroeder’s resignation:
In light of today’s indictment of Assemblyman Schroeder, I do no believe he can continue to properly serve his constituents while facing these serious charges. I believe it is in the best interest of his constituents that Assemblyman Schroeder immediately resign his seat in the General Assembly.”
