Before the coronavirus pandemic, lawmakers were holding hearings into the allegations of misogyny and a toxic culture for women in Trenton. It stemmed, largely, from a sexual assault allegation made by Katie Brennan, a one-time campaign volunteer for Gov. Phil Murphy. She claims that a Murphy staffer, Al Alvarez, raped her after a campaign event in 2017.

She spoke with Senior Correspondent Briana Vannozzi in her first broadcast interview since the announcement.
