A senior official in the governor’s office has accused a former fellow top staffer of rape, and on Tuesday she testified in Trenton.

The woman said her calls for action by the Murphy administration went unanswered.

Katie Brennan, chief of staff to the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, put her right hand up and swore to tell the truth about a sexual assault she said occurred while working on Murphy’s campaign, CBS2’s Meg Baker reported.

“I reported my attack to the police and the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, and my report went unheard,” Brennan said. “I reported my attack to the campaign, the transition committee and administration and it went unheard. I asked to report my attack to the governor and first lady and my request went unheard. I an no survivor should have to tell her story to the newspaper to be heard.”


Brennan, exasperated, took her story to the Wall Street Journal after her alleged rapist, Albert Alvarez continued to work for the governor.
