Bur­l­ing­ton County Free­hold­er Aimee Bel­gard (D) cri­ti­cized former Ran­dolph May­or Tom Ma­cAr­thur (R) for hav­ing in­vest­ments in Rus­si­an oil com­pan­ies Gazprom and Lukoil, and the Chinese Na­tion­al Off­shore Oil Cor­por­a­tion. Bel­gard ar­gued that Ma­cAr­thur’s Rus­si­an in­vest­ments could be a con­flict of in­terest as Con­gress levels eco­nom­ic sanc­tions against Rus­sia.

Bel­gard: “Un­til he di­vests from these com­pan­ies, voters should take everything he has to say about en­ergy in­de­pend­ence or tak­ing a hard line on Ir­an with a grain of salt.” (Politick­erNJ)
