George Gilmore resigns as Ocean County GOP chairman after conviction

TOMS RIVER - Ocean County GOP leader George R. Gilmore, convicted on federal tax charges last week, has resigned as chairman of the county's Republican organization.

Gilmore submitted his letter of resignation to the organization, effective at 4 p.m. Wednesday. The GOP organization's vice chairwoman, Barbara Lanuto, will take over as acting chair until an election is held to determine Gilmore's successor.

It was a swift fall from grace. Toms River resident Gilmore, 70, also resigned Tuesday from his position as chairman of Ocean County's Board of Elections. He had held that position since 1995.

A federal jury April 17 convicted Gilmore on one count of filing a false bank loan application and two counts of failure to pay payroll taxes for the first two quarters of 2016 for employees of his Toms River law firm, Gilmore & Monahan.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on July 23 and faces a maximum sentence of more than 30 years in federal prison and fines totaling $1.5 million.

1. Gee, I can't recall who it was, but wasn't someone famous in the news lately for filing false

mortgage loan applications? Then filing opposite numbers to I.R.S.?
