New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) is facing another controversy ahead of a hotly contested race to keep his seat.

In a report released on Wednesday, Project Veritas exposed the Democrat’s secret plan to give $40 million of taxpayer money to illegal immigrants. In the undercover video, senior aide to his reelection campaign, Wendy Martinez, admitted the plan would be “political suicide” for Murphy.

Murphy’s senior aide then doubled down and said he should wait to tell voters about his plan until after he is elected.

This comes as Murphy has found himself in a tightening race against Republican challenger Jack Ciattarelli as voters remain skeptical of the Democrat’s handling of the economy and crippling COVID lockdowns.

Meanwhile, other staffers like the manager of N.J. Forward said he expects Murphy to supply more money to illegal immigrants and added Murphy hasn’t spoken about it on the campaign trail due to it’s unpopularity. This prompted critics like Project Veritas Founder James O’Keefe to warn that in order for voters to make informed decisions about who is elected, they have to know their beliefs and what they’re going to do.

In the meantime, Democrat Gov. Murphy and Republican candidate Ciattarelli are set to square off in the election for governor on Nov. 2.
