“I will resign when every Democrat legislator and every Democrat candidate up to and including Phil Murphy, take a polygraph to determine whether or not they have ever used the same word. Afterwards, we can all resign together,” Space said.
“In fact I will reach out and find a polygraph technician to be available at the next session day and set up a table outside of the Democrat caucus for their convenience. It will be as easy as getting their blood pressure checked,” he added.
On the heels of the flap, Jacqueline Stapel (pictured) issued a statement to InsiderNJ.
“As an individual and a Sussex County resident, I am deeply offended that a private conversation amongst myself, Jennifer Hamilton and Parker Space was secretly recoded and leaked to the media for cheap political gain,” Stapel said. “As an American, I denounce its secret leakage and use by the media and political campaigns because it is undermining everyone’s private rights. With underhanded tactics like this, it’s no wonder why Democrats and Republicans have a more difficult time working together for the common good.
“Parker Space is my friend,” she added. “I may not agree with him on issues, but that does not lead me to hate him. Unfortunately some people can’t see the difference between disagreement and hate and it is denigrating our political discourse.”
