Maine Nurse Slams Christie for “Politics” on Ebola

State-imposed quarantines for health workers who return from Ebola-stricken countries are driven by “an abundance of politics,” Kaci Hickox told NBC News’ "Meet The Press" on Sunday. The Maine Nurse had a public spat with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie last week after she spent a weekend in an isolation tent near the airport in Newark where she returned from Sierra Leone. “When Gov. Christie stated that it was an abundance of caution, which is his reasoning for putting health care workers in a sort of quarantine for three weeks, it was really an abundance of politics,” she told Chuck Todd. “And I think all of the scientific and medical and public health community agrees with me on that statement."
