Controversial comment allegation

On October 31, 1994, WZVU-FM ("Oldies 107.1") in Long Branch, New Jersey, reported that in a private meeting with several Long Branch city officials in January 1993, Pallone said that he heard there were "too many Jews in City Hall."[1][2][3] October 31 is the 304th day of the year (305th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 61 days remaining. ... 1994 (MCMXCIV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated as the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal. // Events January Bill Clinton January 1 : North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) goes into effect. ... Map of Long Branch in Monmouth County Long Branch is a City located in Monmouth County, New Jersey. ...


Pallone vigorously denied ever saying this remark, even though the Asbury Park Press reported on November 1, 1994, that "People present at the meeting, including Mayor Adam Schneider, who is Jewish, said yesterday they remembered the comment but did not consider Pallone's words to be a slur." The Asbury Park Press is the major daily newspaper in Monmouth and Ocean counties, New Jersey, and the second largest in the state. ... November 1 is the 305th day of the year (306th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 60 days remaining. ... 1994 (MCMXCIV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated as the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal. // Events January Bill Clinton January 1 : North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) goes into effect. ...


In the time between the private meeting and the radio report, Pallone had supported the unsuccessful Mayoral candidacy of his brother, John Pallone, in Long Branch's May 1994 election against incumbent Schneider.


Although Pallone's district contains a large number of Jewish constituents and 1994 was a bad year for Democratic candidates, Pallone was reelected by a comfortable margin.
