Assembly Democratic Leadership Respond To Recent Allegations

(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, Majority Leader Lou Greenwald, Assembly members Eliana Pintor Marin, Gordon Johnson, Shavonda Sumter and John Burzichelli issued Monday the following joint statement:

“The allegations published in the media thus far are more abhorrent than imaginable. Ms. Brennan was remarkably brave to provide such details, on the record, of such a harrowing experience. Her experience and story speak to a systemic failure within the current system. The current system is unacceptable and intolerable. It requires legislative action.

“The handling of Ms. Brennan’s allegations must be thoroughly reviewed. So should the system which has ignored her voice. We are committed to both.”
