Monday, November 9, 2015 calls Englewood assemblyman an 'ass'

The intersection that replaced the Little Ferry Circle doesn't allow drivers heading east on Route 46 to turn left onto Bergen Turnpike. Meanwhile, reconstruction of the bridge over the Hackensack River limps along, with only two of the four lanes open.


A story on a bill to help downtown businesses refers to a supporter, Democrat Gordon Johnson of Englewood, as an "ass".

The story, which was updated at 5:46 p.m. today, abbreviates the title before the lawmaker's name as "Ass."

Here is the paragraph as it appears on the North Jersey Media Group Web site:

"I don't think it will be a big boost, I think it will help," said Ass. Gordon Johnson, D-Englewood, a bill supporter who heads the committee. He said Bergen County is so heavily built up that he believes most towns under 10,000 residents would meet the development criteria."

The Record's style is not to abbreviate assemblyman before a name.
