WEINBERG
LIZETTE
DELGADO-POLANCO
The Senate Majority Leader sees her landmark legislation making Non-Disclosure Agreements in sexual harassment, assault and discrimination lawsuits is signed into law by Gov. Phil Murphy Repeated from last week, and the week before: how many more punches in the face can the embattled CEO of the New Jersey Schools Development Authority take before Gov. Phil Murphy calls uncle and fires her?
CORY BOOKER CHARLIE GREEN
The U.S. Senator from New Jersey makes the cutoff to participate in the first Democratic presidential debate. It’s never a good idea to play the “do you know who I am card,” as the former Essex County jail warden found out.
ANNA LITTLE EDWARD FORCHION
The former Monmouth County freeholder gets appointed to serve as a U.S. Immigration judge. The Weedman can’t even get arrested for selling marijuana outside the statehouse anymore.  
JOSEPH CORONATO JOHN RUSSO
The former Ocean County prosecutor gets the organization line for mayor of Toms River — although he faces a primary from one (and maybe two) rivals. The Superior Court Judge faces a sexual harassment lawsuit from a former law clerk.  He now has to face Neil Mullin and Nancy Erika Smith.
To Be Determined
PHIL MURPHY
The governor of New Jersey faces a critical test on Monday when the Legislature is set to consider one of the cornerstones of his legislative agenda: the legalization of recreational marijuana.  As of now, he doesn’t have the votes.  This is New Jersey, where legislators change their views quickly, but this is going to be a tough one for the governor.

One thought on “The Week Before the Weed Vote

  1. Funny how the governor openly campaign for and got elected on legal marijuana as a plank of his campaign and opponents of the proposal think they will get re elected for being on the wrong side of this issue?
