Pig gestation crates confine pregnant pigs, and severely restrict their movement. A bill that would ban these crates is very popular in New Jersey.
The legislation stopped at Gov. Chris Christie’s desk. One New Jersey native isn’t happy about it.
Monday night, Lawrenceville native Jon Stewart knocked Christie for vetoing the bill. “Your choice was either listening to the nearly unanimous voice of the people that elected you or saying ‘(expletive) them,’ and kowtowing to a state 1,000 miles away in exchange for, really, let’s be honest, the slimmest chance for political gain in a caucus you’re not going to win,” Stewart said on The Daily Show, according to NJ.com. “Let the pigs turn around.”
