New Jersey Dem Gov. Murphy caught maskless at indoor ball: ‘Let them wear masks’

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy was caught maskless at an indoor ball weeks after imposing a mask mandate for young children in school.

The Democratic governor attended the Equality Ball on Friday put on by the nonprofit Garden State Equality with other New Jersey officials at the Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, a part of the Monmouth County that has the highest risk of COVID-19 transmission, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

That didn’t stop the party, though, as Murphy – who is up for reelection this year – and the other attendees were caught with their masks down.

Attendees to the dinner were maskless, as revealed by pictures posted online, and Murphy as well as Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., were seen not wearing masks.

Several state lawmakers spoke out on the governor’s maskless gallivanting.

State Senator Holly Schepisi told Fox News in an email statement that the maskless party “is this type of hypocrisy that is driving people in New Jersey insane.” – READ MORE
