NJ political boss George Norcross, who was friends with Pelosi and a member of ... trends now
George Norcross, 67, was called as recently as 2023 New Jersey's 'most powerful unelected individual,' and is often sought after for endorsements and fundraising by New Jersey Democrats.
Norcross - who also has ties to the national party and has a brother who serves in Congress - was kicked out of Sunday's Philadelphia Eagles game against the Dallas Cowboys.
He was seen on video posted to X being escorted for flying a half-American/half-Israeli flag outside his suite.
Norcross - who previously held a membership at former President Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort until 2017 - was sitting next to New Jersey's ex-Republican governor and current presidential candidate Chris Christie, who watched as Norcross was ejected.
A New Jersey political boss with ties to powerful Democrats and at one time, a membership at Mar-a-Lago, was kicked out of a Philadelphia Eagles game for flying the Israeli flag
Earlier in the day, on a televised pre-game show, Christie stood for an interview with a reporter where the same flag was displayed prominently in the background.
According to New Jersey Globe reporter David Wildstein, it may have come from Norcross himself, as he frequently hosts a tailgate prior to Philadelphia Eagles games.
Norcross' power lies in Southern New Jersey and particularly Camden, which is just five miles from Philadelphia.
Lincoln Financial Field, where the Eagles play, has no specific policy against the flag but does have rules regarding signs and banners.
'Signs, banners or similar items that are obscene or indecent, not event-related, potentially offensive to other patrons, capable of blocking the views of other fans or otherwise deemed dangerous or inappropriate by the Eagles are prohibited,' their 2014 guidelines state.
'Lincoln Financial Field reserves the right to confiscate signs that are in violation of stadium policy.'
