Democrat Amy DeGise refuses to resign after video of hit and run surfaces

Lawmakers feel they’re above their own laws. That’s especially true for one New Jersey Democrat.

Jersey City Councilwoman Amy DeGise is refusing to step down despite video evidence showing her failing to stop or even slow down after her car plowed into a bicyclist, Fox News reported. The man she hit, 29-year-old Andrew Black, suffered severe bruising and has lasting anxiety following the incident.

Last week, DeGise was driving her black SUV through the intersection of Forrest Street and Martin Luther King Drive when she ran into Black on his bicycle. Black maintained that he had a green light though the video showed he ran the red light making him at fault.

However, the issue is that DeGise callously kept going without stopping to see if Black was okay. Her office has claimed that she has “no intention” of resigning despite this grievous offense.

“Councilwoman DeGise was elected overwhelmingly just a few months ago and she has no intention of walking away from the commitment she made to serve the people of Jersey City,” a statement from Phil Swibinski, the councilwoman’s spokesman, said. “She will not resign and plans to complete her full term and continue in public service.”

“Amy recognizes the calls that have been made for additional information and transparency,” the statement continued. “She would very much like to address this situation more comprehensively, but there is a legal process that must play out first, and she will not be making any additional public comment at this time,” Swibinski said.

DeGise maintains that she suffered a head injury during the accident, which is why she left the scene. However, she went to a police station hours later to file a report.

The video evidence contradicts Black’s claim about having the right of way and demonstrates that he was at fault. DeGise could have easily gotten herself off the hook by simply stopping and helping him out, but she chose the path of sleazy politicians everywhere: lie and deny.

I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…

Wow so it does not matter if a person hits a cyclist or person while driving. None the less who was in the right of the situation. I would think a person has a duty to at least stop the vehicle and make sure the person is ok . and not dead or injured . Sounds to me like this person feels that they are better than anyone else. .That alone would make me want that person to step down from their position. We have more than our share of Idiots and morons in public office
