MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey Republican congressional candidate criticized his Democratic opponent Friday amid mounting evidence that Democratic officials planted a tea-party candidate in the race to siphon off conservative votes.
“My opponent, John Adler, represents everything that is wrong with politics in our country today,” Republican Jon Runyan said. “I would ask for an apology. But frankly, an apology from someone like Congressman Adler would be so meaningless that it’s not worth seeking.”
He spoke at a news conference Friday as Adler, a first-term Democratic lawmaker, and his campaign remained mum about a report in the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill in which Democratic operatives speaking on the condition of anonymity confirmed what Republicans have believed for months: That tea-party candidate Peter DeStefano was put on the ballot by Democrats.
The operatives said a county Democratic employee is running at least the Web elements of DeStefano’s campaign.
Tea party organizations, which have denounced DeStefano since he entered the race in June, called on him Friday to quit.
DeStefano and Adler have previously denied the accusations. DeStefano, Adler and top officials in Adler’s campaign and did not return calls or e-mails from The Associated Press on Friday.
In an August interview with the AP, DeStefano excoriated both Adler and Runyan.

FOX Business: The Power to Prosper
The bulls propelled the Dow over the 11000 hump on Friday as Wall Street hoped September’s gloomy jobs report will force the Fed to make its easy-money policies even easier.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 57.90 points, or 0.53%, to 11006.48, the Standard & Poor’s 500 gained 7.09 points, or 0.61%, to 1165.15 and the Nasdaq Composite gained 18.24 points, or 0.77%, to 2401.91. The FOX 50 added 4.10 points, or 0.49%, to 837.00.
While it wasn’t based on positive economic news, the latest burst of buying follows Wall Street’s strongest September since 1949 and allowed the blue chips to close above the psychologically-important 11000 level for the first time since May 3.

Banks have come under scrutiny in the wake of the disclosure that the industry’s foreclosure process had used “robo-signers,” or people who sign hundreds or thousands of documents a day without reviewing the details.
BofA, which is the largest U.S. mortgage servicer, said it has decided to extend the review of its foreclosure documents across the entire country.
