The Week of a Courageous Woman

Winner Losers
KATIE BRENNAN PHIL MURPHY
Courageous. It’s been a rough week for the governor after the much-anticipated Wall Street Journal story about Al Alvarez.  While in Germany on a trade mission, the Legislature announces that they will launch their own investigation.  
JAY WEBBER BOB HUGIN
The assemblyman and GOP congressional candidate is adding to his campaign coffers with a high-dollar fundraiser headlined by Donald Trump that comes a week after Mike Pence raised money for him — for the second time. The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, stuck in the low 40’s in pols, takes a huge gambit with a TV ad that alleges his opponent hired underage prostitutes, and then gets slammed by Washington Post and New York Times fact checkers for advancing debunked and unsubstantiated rumors.
MICHAEL CRITCHLEY ROBERT WILSON
The famed criminal defense lawyer, who started out as an assistant counsel to Gov. Brendan Byrne, returns to the statehouse as counsel for a bi-partisan joint committee that will investigate sexual harassment and hiring practices in the Murphy administration. The Bergen County Superior Court Judge keeps insisting it’s ok to switch out a deceased candidate even after votes have already been cast, like he’s living in some kind of alternate universe where judges can see things in Title 19 that mere mortals can’t.
CORY BOOKER ANN GROSSI
The U.S. Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate receives a strong reception in South Carolina — a key primary state — and the NJ Legislature seems poised to make it clear that he can run for president and re-election to the Senate in two years, if he wants to. The “overqualified” Morris County Clerk messes up an election, again.  This time she sends a VBM from Mount Arlington to a Mountain Lakes voter.  Mistakes happen, but this embattled election official made no effort to even remedy the problem. 
JULIA FAHL PAUL DOUGHERTY
The rising star soon-to-be mayor of Lambertville issues a perfectly worded statement about a chair-throwing incident to the Wall Street Journal, preserving her relationships and her conscience. The Haddon Township Commissioner and Cherry Hill/Medford municipal prosecutor resigned, then pleaded guilty to taking an illegal referral fee.  He still faces charges of leaving the scene of an accident.
