I love my homes state, Save Jerseyans. I think that’s obvious.
But I can’t lie and pretend that we don’t earn our bad national reputation.
Case in point…
Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby attended Bob Menendez’s Hoboken victory celebration on Tuesday night. Who? I’m not surprised if you don’t remember. Arroyo-Maultsby was a juror at Menendez’s 2017 corruption/bribery trial (which ended in an inconclusive mistrial). She was ultimately dismissed by the Court to attend a vacation.
“I came out here to night because I know Bob Menendez is a good person,” Arroyo-Maultsby told NorthJersey.com Tuesday night. “Bob Menendez is a very good man. … He did nothing wrong. He’s a great man. I voted for him.”
You can’t make this s–t up. It’s like an HBO series! But real…
Among the supporters tonight @SenatorMenendez’s HQ is Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby, a juror on his federal corruption trial. She achieved some fame when she left the jury last year during deliberations to go on vacation. She would’ve voted for acquittal. @northjersey pic.twitter.com/mVNSJdwGtK
