In a 2013 voicemail, Belleville Councilwoman, Marie Strumolo Burke, was caught on tape allegedly spitting out racial slurs, NJ.com reported. Her remarks were in regards to her village and how she did not want her town to become a “f----- n---- town.”

Burke currently holds her position as councilwoman for a Newark suburb and is running as a democrat against Mayor Raymond Kimble in the June election for mayor in Belleville, N.J., New York Daily News reported.
