Recently, the Bergen County Republican Organization (BCRO) developed and funded campaign literature that stated that Deputy Minority Leader/State Assemblyman Kevin O’Toole (R-40) was “the Republican Al Sharpton.” The paid mailer claimed that when it came to redistricting, O’Toole’s seat was protected because of his “Asian/Korean” descent. The mailer included a grainy, black and white side by side photo of Assemblyman O’Toole and Reverend Al Sharpton. The photo of Mr. O’Toole is one that showed him a bit unshaven, so that his facial hair was comparable to Mr. Sharpton’s.
