Republican Congressional candidate Jon Runyan has filed charges against a campaign staffer for Congressman John Adler (D-NJ03).
From the Courier Post:
Last Wednesday, Fredric C. Samson of Mount Holly allegedly trespassed on the Runyans’ Mount Laurel property and took photographs as their youngest daughter, Isabella, played in the front yard, according to a Mount Laurel Police report.
The 8-year-old went into the house and told her mother that Samson was standing in the driveway, according to Jon Runyan. Loretta Runyan, a former Houston police officer, got into her car and followed Samson for four miles until he stopped at Rep. John Adler’s Evesham campaign office.
The Adler campaign issued the following statement:
“Last Wednesday a volunteer photographer took seven photos of the front of Jon Runyan’s house, nothing more.”
“We apologize if images of the Runyan property have brought any discomfort to Mr. and Mrs. Runyan.”
The Adler campaign has refused to say if Sansom is still involved with the campaign.
Mount Laurel police have confirmed that Sansom, a Burlington County Democratic Committeeman, is being investigated for harassment.
Personally, I think Fred Samson is lucky the police got to him before Runyan did.
