Booker's Opponent Criticizes Bill the Senator Wrote with Rand Paul

U.S. Sen. Cory Booker’s opponent today criticized bipartisan legislation the senator introduced Tuesday to overhaul federal criminal justice laws. Jeff Bell, the Republican U.S. Senate nominee, took issue with part of the bill that would only allow employers to see “relevant and accurate information” in FBI background checks. Booker (D-N.J.) introduced the bill, called the “REDEEM Act,” jointly with Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Booker campaign manager Brendan Gill said Bell "fails to see what Senators on both side of the aisle have — that America's criminal justice system is broken and is wasting tax dollars and human potential." "While Jeff Bell is attacking members of his own party, Sen. Booker is working with them to tackle the tough issues of our time," Gill said.
