NJ To Prosecute NY Young Republicans Club For Secret Gala, Orders Venue Closed Down For COVID Violations

New Jersey’s WXKY radio reports:

New York Young Republicans who hoped to keep the location of their annual fundraiser a secret have been outed by Jersey City’s chief prosecutor, who said he will bring charges for violating Gov. Phil Murphy’s coronavirus executive orders.

Mid-day Friday, city officials said the restaurant holding the event has been shut down as well.

Jersey City chief prosecutor Jake Hudnut responded to to a tweet by attendee Joel Fischer, who taunted New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to “come and get me.” He was pictured with Florida Rep. Matt Gatez, who was a speaker at the fundraiser.
