ELEC Commissioners Resign

The New Jersey Statehouse and Capitol Building In Trenton

“The three commissioners who comprise the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission resigned Thursday afternoon,” according to published reports.

“The commissioners, ELEC Chairman Eric Jaso, Commissioner Stephen Holden and Commissioner Marguerite Simon, were expected to find themselves on the chopping block after both chambers of the Legislature, controlled by Democrats, passed a bill Thursday that would grant the governor more power over the watchdog agency that oversees elections.

“That bill, the Elections Transparency Act, is now headed to Gov. Phil Murphy’s desk and is expected to be signed into law as early as Monday.

“It gives Murphy unilateral power to select the four commissioners of ELEC without state Senate approval for a 90-day period. Many expected the governor to quickly replace the board and push out the current executive director, Jeff Brindle.”

  1. This is the end of fair elections in New Jersey. It is the Democrats power grab to maintain control of the state. It’s time for everyone, not a Democrat-Socialist who feeds at the welfare and entitlement trough to move out of the state. It seems Bergen, Essex and Passaic Counties are leading that charge already this year with 11,000 outmigrating to southern states, e.g., the Carolinas, Texas, Florida.
