Trenton NJ, you could call it a tale of two states. After the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, sent COVID patients into nursing and veterans’ homes – resulting in the deaths of thousands – the Democrats in that state called for an independent investigation. When the Governor insisted that he should be the one to investigate himself, New York Democrats demanded that he step aside.
Apparently, that is not how it works in New Jersey. As the latest press release of the Sussex County Democrat duo of Scott Paul and Mike Vrabel illustrates – in New Jersey, Democrats are a pack of apologists and “yes men”. They are too afraid to disturb Governor Phil Murphy’s easily ruffled feathers.
In New Jersey, more than 8,000 blessed souls died because of Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 103, which was specifically cited by the state’s Health Commissioner when she ordered nursing and veterans’ homes to take in COVID patients. The directors of these long-term care facilities begged the state to reconsider and told them people would die – but the Murphy Administration carelessly plowed ahead.
