New Jersey Senate Proposes Co-Chair of Barbara Buono’s Senate Majority Leadership

Just like the Jim Crow laws, or non tariff trade barriers, there are a host of indirect methods to keep an individual or group from prospering.

In this case, it’s an untested, unprecedented recommendation by NJ Democrats to divide the power of the first female Majority Leader in half!

Nowhere in any state legislature nor the Congress has the role of Senate Majority Leader been divided between two people. In fact, the only evidence of a Co- majority Leader is in a California Day School!

Certainly, with only 24 Democratic members in the Senate, the job is not overwhelming. Nationally, the House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor, leads 254 members.

Of 188 nations in the world, the US now ranks 90th worldwide in terms of the number of women in elected office. We are behind Afghanistan!

The subtle and not so subtle subjugation of women has to end.
