Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean and Senator Kristin Corrado said new details of an alleged sexual assault by a former campaign worker of Governor Phil Murphy reinforce the need for legislative hearings into the administration’s hiring practices, and said the difficulties experienced by the victim in seeking justice should prompt a review of New Jersey’s criminal and civil statutes regarding sexual assault.

“The sexual assault alleged by Ms. Brennan was just the beginning of a story that is both heartbreaking and all too common among the victims of sex crimes,” said Kean. “Despite taking every reasonable step that a person subject to such a traumatic assault could be expected to take, Ms. Brennan was unable to find justice in either a court of law or with her employer. This should serve as a call to action for the Legislature to address these issues immediately.”

“For-profit companies must pay their fair share of taxes,” Corrado said. “Currently, money-making cemeteries have been benefiting from a nonprofit system. This is unfair. Taxpayers shouldn’t have to foot the bill.”

Senator Kristin Corrado called for legislative hearings to determine how a former politician convicted of bribery could be hired into the Murphy Administration despite state laws prohibiting the employment of corrupt officials in government positions.

“Governor Murphy’s suggestion that his administration conducted a legal review that supported the hiring of Marcellus Jackson despite his prior conviction on federal corruption charges doesn’t pass the smell test,” said Corrado. “Both the Attorney General and the Office of Legislative Services have said the hiring is a violation of New Jersey law. We must hold legislative hearings to determine where the process broke down and how it can be fixed going forward to maintain the public’s trust in government.”

“Seeing a child find their forever-family is truly a blessing,” Corrado said. “I was fortunate to grow up in a loving home, where two of my sisters were adopted. This experience definitely inspired me to become a lifelong advocate for foster kids and adoptive families. During my time as Passaic County Clerk, I also had the privilege to participate in many remarkable Adoption Days,” Corrado added. “These moments celebrate a child’s path to a new family, and honor their story. Donating new and unwrapped toys is a great way for people in our community to show their support.”

Following last weekend’s catastrophic rainfall in Northern New Jersey and at the Jersey Shore, Senator Kristin Corrado (R-Bergen, Essex, Morris, Passaic) is urging New Jersey’s United States Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker to fight for FEMA funding to help flood-ravaged communities cope with the aftermath of the storm.

“The State of Emergency Governor Murphy declared this week was a start, but it is becoming abundantly clear to us that we are not going to be able to rebuild our communities without FEMA aid,” Senator Corrado said. “The flood damage we have seen in Little Falls, Cedar Grove, Woodland Park, Brick, and several other towns is astounding. It is time for our counterparts in Washington to step up to the plate and fight for additional funding. Scores of families have been displaced from their homes. Community centers have been destroyed. How much more proof do our elected leaders need before they take action?”

Torres/NJ Governor’s Office)

After joining the District 40 legislators on a tour of flood-ravaged areas in Little Falls yesterday, Governor Murphy today declared a State of Emergency, so that storm-impacted communities can secure State funds to cope with the damage of last weekend’s catastrophic rain storms.

“Disaster relief is not a partisan issue. We have to reach across the aisle and work together to help every family who was hit hard by this storm. The devastation we have seen in our neighborhoods is heart-wrenching, to say the least. There are people here who have lost everything,” Senator Corrado (R-40) said. “I am so grateful to Governor Murphy for taking immediate action to ensure our communities have the resources they need to rebuild and recover.”

“The repercussions of texting sexually explicit images for teenagers can be far-reaching,” Corrado (R-40) said. “Many don’t think about the social trauma, bullying, and heartbreak they could experience if a picture or video falls into the wrong hands, and they often don’t realize they might be creating, possessing, or distributing child pornography with extremely serious legal repercussions. It’s imperative that we teach our kids that ‘sexting’ can ruin their reputations and impact their future.”

The legislation (S-396) forbids members of the council from voting on investments that present a financial or familial conflict of interest. The bill was pushed forward by the senators in the wake of several pension scandals in New Jersey.

“This legislation is a critical step forward in our longstanding efforts to bring transparency and accountability to the way the government invests taxpayer dollars,” Senator Pennacchio (R-26) said. “I am glad to see Governor Murphy take action on our bill. There have been far too many violations of public trust on the State Investment Council in recent years. Anyone who handles public money must be held accountable.”
