Marcellus Jackson is a corrupt politician. A crook. He took a $26,000 bribe, was caught by the FBI, and was sentenced to prison and fined.
That should have been an end to his time on the public payroll. But Marcellus Jackson is a Democrat. A politically-connected Democrat who worked on Governor Phil Murphy’s 2017 campaign.
And now he’s been rewarded… with our tax dollars. Over the summer, Marcellus Jackson was handed a $70,000-a-year-job as a “special assistant” in the New Jersey Department of Education. He’ll be running the Education Department’s Office of Civic & Social Engagement.
The education of children? Civic and social engagement? A corrupt politician who took bribes?
Governor Murphy claims that Jackson is “a good example” that he “hopes we see a lot more of.”
What does he mean by that?
More convicted criminals getting taxpayer-funded jobs?
More corrupt politicians getting back on the gravy train?
More criminals involved in the education of our children?
Has recreational marijuana been decriminalized early in some places?
This is the radical program of Democratic Socialism on display. Murphy is one of its national adherents.
Which brings us to congressional candidate Tom Malinowski. He links to a Democratic Socialist group right on his campaign website. A few weeks back, Tom Malinowski went on national media to make the claim that his party – the Democrats – were the party of “law & order”.
No kidding. He really said that about his party. The party of abolish ICE. Sanctuary States. Resist the elected government of the United States. Give convicted criminals top taxpayer-funded jobs. Law & Order????
Of course, Tom Malinowski has had nothing to say about the appointment of Marcellus Jackson. Crickets, as they say.
That goes for congressional candidate Andy Kim too. Crickets.
And congressional candidate Mikie Sherrill. Crickets.
