Description

John Sheridan’s decision to go work at Cooper University Hospital came at a curious time. It was just months after news about the Palmyra tapes came out. The tapes caught George Norcross bullying and offering a favor to a small town official; they are a rare instance where evidence emerged of the rough and tumble side to the south Jersey political machine. An email shows Norcross' control over the state legislature and city council members in Camden explain what it means to be a "yes yes" person.

• Micah Rasmussen, director of Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics at Ryder University


• Tom Knoche, lecturer at Rutgers University in Camden


• Matt Katz, reporter at WNYC


• Shaneka Boucher, Camden City Councilwoman
