Host Committee for Democratic National Convention Fires Murphy Political Advisors for Creating “Toxic and Unstable Working Environment” for Women

Senator Kristin Corrado and Senator Steven Oroho said a toxic culture of misogyny that has long surrounded Governor Phil Murphy was thrust into the national spotlight in recent days when it was revealed that a pair of the governor’s political advisors were accused of abusive behavior and fired from their positions helping to organize the Democratic National Convention.

Corrado said she hopes the news out of Milwaukee will push the Governor to join a bipartisan legislative effort to fix the culture of Trenton.

“Perhaps being in the national spotlight for the wrong reasons will provide Governor Murphy the incentive he needs to start addressing the misogynistic culture that he and his administration have helped perpetuate,” said Corrado (R-40). “Instead of always rushing to defend the indefensible, the governor should lead by example and hold his team accountable when they do wrong. If he doesn’t, nothing will change.”

Through this law, his spirit will continue to support young people dealing with pediatric cancer and their families.”

“The severity of the state’s heart-breaking drug epidemic demands action,” said Kean (R-24). “This program will save lives by providing first responders with insight into where fentanyl is most rampant and which neighborhoods and towns face the greatest threat. The testing could help police track the sources of the deadly drugs and get them off the streets.”

“People are dying on the streets because they are not aware fentanyl is in the drugs they are abusing,” said Corrado (R-40). “Fentanyl is a killer. Fatal opioid overdoses in the State are 50 percent higher than the national average, and the prevalence of fentanyl is largely responsible. The data we learn from this program will help save lives.”
