Queen Tammy is a peerless hypocrite, Save Jerseyans.
The latest egregious example: according to The New York Times, Governor Murphy’s wife (best known for a $13,000 office door) stands accused of discriminating against a nursing member of the New Jersey State Police.
Specifically, per the NYT, the “suit claims that Ms. Murphy refused to permit a State Police trooper assigned to protect her to use a carriage house at the family’s riverside estate in Middletown, N.J., to pump breast milk during breaks.” To make matters worse, the suit alleges that “[t]he first lady told the woman’s supervisor, who runs the State Police unit that guards Gov. Philip D. Murphy and his family, that ‘it was not encouraged because of optics by guests who may be on the premises.'”
Shocked? Remember who we’re dealing with:
- Tammy’s signature issue as First Lady? “Maternal health.” Oops.
- The same woman who allegedly won’t let troopers pump breast milk WHILE GUARDING HER FAMILY (!) is married to a man who spent nearly $500,000 in taxpayer dollars on the power pair’s new State House office decor including pillows, chairs, and curtains worth thousands of dollars a piece.
- Whether it’s the Katie Brennan saga, female inmates, or the members of his own soccer team, the Murphys have demonstrated a consistent pattern of callous indifference to the plight of women particularly those in vulnerable situations.
Keep all of this in mind the next time either of them crows about defending “women’s rights” in New Jersey.
Outside abortion access? I’m unaware of anything Phil Murphy or his wife have positively accomplished for any woman not named Tammy.
