New Jersey Senator Steven Oroho, primary sponsor of comprehensive legislation to mitigate steroid use among students, stated the following in response to today’s vote to keep known and alleged performance enhancing drug users out of Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame:
“Hall of Fame voters set the right example for America’s youth by denying baseball’s ultimate, eternal distinction to former players whose careers are justly tarnished by their use of PEDs. Hopefully, today’s decision establishes a precedent for future Hall of Fame votes and inspires more leaders of schools, communities, states and collegiate or professional sports to protect children and deter them from being tempted by promises of fame due to steroid use.
“Cheating, in the end, does not get you ahead, and there is no glory in using destructive drugs that jeopardize your health.”

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
