(WND News Center) – The political campaign for New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, who is seeking re-election, is dealing this week with the fallout from undercover videos from Project Veritas revealing he apparently wants to win the election, and then announce plans for COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
Those requirements are being contested all across the nation now, with multiple lawsuits challenging school, work, state and even federal demands for people to take the experimental treatments.
The plans confirmed by the Murphy campaign reveal the strategy is to keep concealed his mandate plans until after the election, because independents and others won’t endorse the shot demands.
The New York Post noted Republicans now are demanding answers from Murphy about his staff’s revelations.
The first video from Project Veritas shows Wendy Martinez, who works Hispanic outreach for the campaign, telling and undercover reporter Murphy would implement widespread mandates like California, but the plan can’t be revealed because “right now it is about him winning.”
“He’s going to do it, but he couldn’t do it before the elections because [independent and undecided voters are] all into all the s**t, my rights, my s**t,” Martinez said.
She accused those opposed to vaccine mandates of being uncaring “if they kill everybody.”
Another staffer, Matthew Urquijo, confirmed that the plan was to win an election, then impose the vaccine mandates.
PETITION UPDATE (9/27/21) -
United has agreed to put off its threatened COVID vaccine mandate for another 2 weeks, as proceedings came to a screeching halt in federal court last Friday.
Mark Paoletta, a partner at Schaerr Jaffe representing the plaintiffs, was quoted by Breitbart as saying:
"Now everyone can follow the court’s decision to take the time and care needed to carefully consider the legitimate claims our clients have as we seek a solution that allows United to take necessary steps to combat COVID-19 while respecting the civil rights of valuable employees who have sincere religious objections or medical conditions that make them unable to take the vaccine."
While this appears to be a lessening of tensions and possibly a step in the right direction, we must wait till the case resumes on October 15 to see if United will scrap their draconian mandate.
In the meantime, we must continue to apply pressure on United.
So, please continue to SIGN and SHARE this pledge to boycott the airline giant for threatening to impose harsh measures - including forced unpaid leave - in order to coerce employees with religious or medical objections to the vaccine to take the jab.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE!
United Airlines is accused of not respecting the religious and medical COVID vaccine exemptions which the company offered to employees who cannot, in good conscience or health, take the vaccine.
2,000 employees of the industry giant are represented in two court cases which have been initiated to stop United from laying-off or indefinitely furloughing workers who have sought COVID vaccine exemptions.
Please SIGN this BOYCOTT of United and send the airline a stong message that you will not support the implementation of these draconian measures.
Many United Airlines employees have sincerely held religious objections to taking the COVID vaccines, while other employees have been told by their doctors not to take the vaccine due to health concerns.
The religious and medical rights of these employees must be respected, and, will hopefully be vindicated by the courts.
But, airlines are for-profit businesses, and apart from the legal incentives, there must also be financial incentives for them to respect their employees' religious and medical rights, and, indeed, the same rights of all Americans.
And, that's why we are calling for a boycott.
The CEO of United Airlines, Scott Kirby, and HR Manager, Kate Gebo, need to understand that the American public will not support businesses who force their employees or customers to violate their religious beliefs or their doctors' recommendations.
Of course, this is totally unnecessary.
United could simply make reasonable accommodations for their employees who are claiming either a religious or medical exemption.
But, until United adopts that policy, we are asking you to consider boycotting the "unfriendly skies" and find another airline for your travel needs. By doing so, you will meaningfully stand shoulder-to-shoulder with these aggrieved United employees.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition to boycott United Airlines over the company's failure to respect religious and medical COVID vaccine exemptions for its employees.

He said, “I think the problem is right now because it’s election season, he’s not going to have people say like, ‘We’re going to have a mandate now’,” Urquijo said.
Tom Szymanski of the New Jersey State Republican Committee called for Murphy to make clear his plan.
“This extremely disturbing video appears to confirm what the Murphy campaign has been hinting at — and the NJGOP has been warning about — throughout the summer: that a second Murphy term will bring about the same type of vaccine passports seen in Bill de Blasio’s New York, burdening already suffering businesses and discriminating against minority communities in which immunization rates are lower,” he said.
“Phil Murphy must immediately state his intentions on this matter before voting ends next week and disclose whether or not data of thousands of New Jerseyans already entered into the Docket App has been harvested for the purpose of implementing a vaccine passport,” the GOP statement continued.
The Murphy campaign responded with an attack on the credibility of Project Veritas.
Spokeswoman Rachel Bocchino called O’Keefe a “right-wing propagandist” and accused him of “harassment and physical intimidation.”
