The Demo­crat­ic Con­gres­sion­al Cam­paign Com­mit­tee is post­ing Web ads that say, “It’s time for Tom Ma­cAr­thur (R-NJ 03) to de­clare in­de­pend­ence from his re­cord of short­chan­ging his em­ploy­ees.” The ad is re­fer­ring to law­suits against Ma­cAr­thur’s former com­pany over with­held over­time pay. The law­suits came after Ma­cAr­thur left the com­pany. (Politick­erNJ)
