Newly released secret footage from Project Veritas shows Wendy Martinez, senior adviser to New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, promising that the Democrat will mandate the COVID-19 shot in the state if he is reelected but is keeping his stance on requiring the jab quiet to appeal to independent voters.
“He’s [Murphy] going to do it [vaccine mandates], but he couldn’t do it before the elections,” Martinez said in Spanish.
Martinez also claimed that Murphy planned to keep his position quiet to appeal to any undecided and independent voters who may be on the fence about re-electing him in the state’s November gubernatorial election.
“They’re into all the sh-t. My rights, my sh-t,” the aide said. “They don’t care if they kill everybody.”
“Right now it is about [Gov. Murphy] winning [re-election], it will be fine,” she confirmed.
Matthew Urquijo, a manager of the Democrat-funded organization New Jersey Forward was also caught on camera repeating what Martinez already confirmed.
“Do you think he’ll do something about that? Like the vaccine mandates and stuff?” the undercover journalist asked.
“I think so. I think the problem is right now because it’s election season, he’s not going to have people say, like, we’re gonna have a mandate now cause, you know, that’s — for some people that’s — it’s going to piss them off,” Urquijo said. “I mean once, you know, we have a win, he’s like, all right, guns blazing, like, who cares.”
The New Jersey GOP slammed the Murphy campaign for “following political science, as opposed to actual science.”
“This extremely disturbing video appears to confirm what the Murphy campaign has been hinting at – and the NJGOP has been warning about – throughout the summer: that a second Murphy term will bring about the same type of vaccine passports seen in Bill de Blasio’s New York, burdening already suffering businesses and discriminating against minority communities in which immunization rates are lower,” said NJGOP Executive Director Tom Szymanski. “Purposefully hiding this life-changing information until after the election is as deceitful as it gets. Phil Murphy must immediately state his intentions on this matter before voting ends next week and disclose whether or not data of thousands of New Jerseyans already entered into the Docket App has been harvested for the purpose of implementing a vaccine passport.”
