Julian Robinson and Bobby Jackson supported Kean for Governor

“Frustrated, if not stunned, at the potential defection of thousands of the party’s most steadfast adherants, Shapiro accused Kean of trying to buy support from influential New Jersey black officials. He charged that Kean had named Julian Robinson, a former Jersey City Democratic chairman, to the New Jersey Highway Authority in exchange for political support and that Jersey City councilman Robert Jackson, head of Democrats for Kean, received five thousand dollars in consultant fees from the state GOP. Kean replied that he had appointed Robinson because he had worked well with him in the past. Of Jackson, Kean said, flashing “that grin,” he was not certain that the councilman was working with the Republicans, but certainly hoped that he was.”
