Len Deo, who head the New Jersey Family Policy Council, tells American Family Association:
The New Jersey Supreme Court has dropped all pretense of impartiality. It’s a breach of public confidence, and I’m not sure that they’ll be able to repair that. It’s a sad day for the rule of law in New Jersey. We’re no longer ruled by freely elected representatives but by a judicial oligarchy.
Well, Len, that just sucks. This, by the way, was before Governor Chris Christie dropped the appeal this morning. “Oligarchy?” The funny thing is that the court voted 7-0 to deny a stay which ultimately led to Christie’s decision to drop the appeal. Those seven judges were appointed by Republican and Democratic governors. The notion that this is an oligarchy is just goofy.
NJFPC has a budget of $400 thousand annually and employs 11 people. During the last two years for which IRS reports are available (2010 and 2011), the organization has seen expenses exceed revenues. The 2011 return was received by the IRS in March, 2013 — over three months beyond the last available extension.
