Congressional Candidate Calls For “Survivor Cop’s” Firing - My9 New Jersey

Congressional Candidate Calls For “Survivor Cop’s” Firing

Posted: Updated:
Jersey City, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Jersey City police office Tony Vlachos recently won the latest season of “Survivor”, but now congressional candidate Aaron Fraser is calling for Vlachos to be fired from his position on the force following his win on the show.

Last week Mr. Fraser was quoted in the Jersey Journal, calling for the immediate firing of Tony Vlachos, the “Survivor Cop,” because he showed himself to be a "trickster, liar, backstabber and dealer”.

Since then, social media has been buzzing about this latest controversy setting off a flood of death threats, racist tweets, and what Fraser feels are threats to his family.

“They’re very hurtful, but what’s more hurtful is the fact that people were throwing eggs at my home, people were calling and telling me that they were gonna kill me, that they were gonna cut my genitals off, that I was a n***** and I didn’t believe to breathe the white-man’s air. I mean the list goes on and on and so right now I’m really afraid, not for my own life because I don’t mind dying, and I’m not afraid to die, but I’m afraid for my family. Why is it that my family has to suffer for something I did?” Fraser explained.

Aaron Fraser is currently running for the U.S. Congress in New Jersey’s 10th district and he says that if he were elected he’d be called upon to make tough decisions and not everyone will be happy with those decisions, just like this decision to call upon Mayor Fulop for Vlachos’ firing.

“This was a tough call, but at the same time, it was more important hat I make the decision to ask for his firing based on an investigation because it serves my community. People outside my community don’t know what goes on inside my community,” Fraser said.

Election Day is coming up on June 3rd and Fraser wants voters to know that he plans to do whatever he can to support his community.
