Jennifer Borg Recognized for "Quote of the Day" by Politico New Jersey Playbook
Jennifer Borg, Of Counsel at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C., was recently recognized for having the Quote of the Day by Politico New Jersey Playbook for an article in the New Jersey Monitor titled, “Daniel’s Law is Bad for N.J. Journalists — and Everyone Who Wants Government Accountability.” The article discusses Daniel’s Law, named for the slain son of a federal judge. Daniel’s Law was intended to keep judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers safe by allowing them to prevent the public from knowing where they live. But in the New Brunswick case, the law is being used to halt legitimate debate about a public official’s residency.
“Making home addresses public has helped reporters uncover that Mark Meadows, Trump’s former chief of staff, was simultaneously registered to vote in three different states, that Justice Thomas sold property to Texas billionaire Harlan Crow and failed to disclose the transaction, and that George Santos lied about having a real estate portfolio. These stories show that allowing reporters access to home addresses can result in important scrutiny of public employees’ conduct,” said Borg.
The quote was recognized as Quote of the Day by Politico New Jersey Playbook.
