Murphy Chooses Staff Over All New Jersey Women In The Workplace

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt blasted Governor Phil Murphy’s defense of staffers handling of sexual assault allegations against Al Alvarez. The Chairman’s press release follows:

Trenton, NJ -  At a press conference yesterday, Governor Murphy defended members of his staff for their handling of sexual assault allegations against Al Alvarez. The protection of his aides comes in executive defiance of the findings of a report released earlier in the day by a bipartisan panel of state legislators. 

Governor Murphy's exact quote was, "I believe that the team in my office did what they believed was the right thing, and I stand behind them. That has been the case and will continue to be the case."

NJGOP Chairman reacted to this with the following statement:

"Members of the Murphy administration showed up to testify before a panel of legislators and lied through their teeth and under oath. Governor Murphy siding with his political aides and allies over the well-being of a potential rape victim sets women’s rights back eons and sends a message that women don’t matter and aren't safe in the Governor’s workplace. New Jersey must come to terms with the sad fact that they elected a Governor who put his political patrons’ job protection ahead of the personal well-being of potential sexual assault victims.

"It's a strange time in New Jersey politics when the New Jersey Republican State Committee is this closely aligned with Senator Loretta Weinberg, but this is about human decency, not partisan politics."

PRESS RELEASE: One Party Control In Trenton Is Failing New Jersey

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt weighed in on the current civil war within the state’s Democratic party today. His press release follows:

Trenton, NJ - Democrat infighting in Trenton has left state government at a total deadlock. NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt offered the following comment on the growing civil war among Democrat factions in New Jersey. 

"Governor Murphy and Democrat leaders in the legislature are locked into a war over power, not ideas. New Jersey desperately needs ideological diversity in the State house. Instead of racing to control more taxpayer dollars, our leaders in Trenton should be racing to find ways to send those dollars back into the pockets of middle class families and small businesses. One party rule is failing the people of New Jersey and it's time for voters to send a conservative check and balance to the legislature. New Jersey deserves honest solutions to real problems."
