saying that this guy should be terminated or not renewed, she referred to him as a hussey. and he saying that is say derogatory term, he was fired because he was gay, i have his attorney with us now. representing former principal in edison, timothy hart, how are you armand. >> good evening. bill: all right, so, i just need to understand, she used the term brazen hussey in the letter, that is front and center in your lawsuit against the board of education, but, sounds like according to letter, there was more to this conversation about not renewing him? >> it was not just brazen hussey. i would challenge never use that term, and wrote someone with his proclivities should not be involved in educating children, and he should be removed before
he does something really weird. bill: the letter from teresa ward, referred to the environment as a hostile work environment working with your client. >> we didn't know about the letter until his termination, teresa ward is -- conducting her own investigation about what she thinks is a host will work environment, that is not her role, without that letter, we would not have really known what happened. it would have been a mystery, thank goodness she feels entitled enough to display her bigotry openly enough for everyone to see, it is rare where some feels so entitled. >> thank you. >> i think that letter was inappropriate, and don't tell me you don't know what she meant by term brazen hussey, and weird
proclivities, there may have been valid claims against this principal but when you use bias language like that. >> board of education which has a duty to evaluate the employees, if she had other issues it is undone because they are sensitive over an accusation of a word, really. >> we don't know, but they opened a door with speech and language she used in letter, for someone like armand and his client to rightfully sue, they will put board members under oath. >> if you are fired from your job, you done know why, and you see your let ter, attacking you, you would okay. bill: but, that is not what happened, when i read the letter, and in is say full list of things that -- >> from this one woman. not from teachers not from employees. bill: we have to see. >> i think this -- >> i would like to see a judge
bill: welcome back to "chasing news," i am bill spadea, all right, our last thoughts on the election, big winners could de blasio reelected as mayor in new york, but former embassy to germany, democrat phil murphy governor succeeding chris christie. bringing in our a-plus panel, what do you think your party won big. >> we did, now time comes to put party back together there are still wounds within the democratic party. i think that murphy will work on top to heal.
there were other big winners and losers as well, sweeny was a huge winner. bill: does this show, a lot of people want to call this a referendum on president trump, but you look at new jersey, murphy was 30 points ahead, a closer margin, but in ey in a be state. i would say, given fact that murphy spent more than $20 million to win primary, kim did okay. >> she did a great job, she was always underdog in the race, new jersey has 800,000 more registered democrats than republicans. 8 years of a republican governor, i can't remember last time voters elected party there are three consecutive terms, i think that kim did a great job, she is say strong campaigner, a bright political future. bill: when do democrats turn on each other to fight over the
spoils. democratic governor, promising to raise taxes and allege lature who has tried to raise taxes, and chris christie vetoed time after time, now they have a blank check. >> i hope you will see democrats come together and work across aisle, but i remind you -- >> do they need to. >> democrat shut down government in first 6 months of john corzine's term. bill: a valid point. >> how is he going to govern. bill: it republican party dead in new jersey. >> no. bill: why not. >> i think they will continue, we go back and forth, we had 8 years of republican governor, half congressional delegation is republican, i am not going to count the republican party out. bill: all right, i'll say, leave it there, but as it taxpayer in new jersey, we have a lot to look forward to, we hope. but bottom line is, you have a democratic governor, and a
democratic lead legislature looking to raise taxes, i am not sure that new jersey will get more affordable, tune in tomorrow morning. for my morning show, we'll break down details of the results and what it means to you and your bank account, see you tomorrow, thanks for watching. >> some things that can be done. >> take them identify subway, ridiculous. >> spending taxpayer dollars to reward prisoners. >> positive reinforcement works.
