Power & Politics: Breaking down the Sen. Menendez indictment; latest on the RWJ nurses strike
Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez was indicted Friday on federal bribery, honest services fraud and extortion charges.
The senator said in a statement that he's being falsely accused and that prosecutors “misrepresented the normal work of a congressional office."
Jeannine Frisby LaRue, former deputy chief of staff to Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine and Chris Russell, a Republican strategist who advised 2021 Republican gubernatorial nominee Jack Ciattarelli, join Alex Zdan to break down the charges against the senator.
The indictment turned many Democrats against the sitting senator. Hector Oseguera, a Hudson County progressive activist and former Democratic congressional candidate, explains why it was just too much to take.
Also, those looking to buy a new gasoline-powered car in New Jersey may only have a few more years to do so. The governor says he wants only new electric vehicles sold in the state beginning in 2035. President and CEO at New Jersey Business & Industry Association is opposed to this proposal, calling it an "absolute mandate."
