Corruption in New Jersey
Some thoughts on the subject:
"Since he was appointed U.S. Attorney by President Bush, Christie has come to resemble a kid fresh out of boot camp who finds himself at one of those Italian, Chinese, Mexican all-you-can-eat buffets. Where to begin?
Harry Pozycki, chairman of the board of trustees of Citizens Campaign, a political watchdog group, recalled Christie telling him he had indicted or convicted more than 100 public officials in New Jersey.
Pozycki remembers Christie saying: "You might expect that after doing 100 public officials, I might be starting to see some daylight, getting near the end of the road. But I've actually got more targets than I had when I started."
Soon after he became Wyatt Earp, it was assumed that Christie, a Republican, had his eyes on elective office, perhaps a United States senator from New Jersey. Or, perhaps governor.
My thinking is, if the Democrats could have seen into the future, they'd have dropped everything long ago to create a Christie For Senate political-action committee, to get him the heck out of Dodge and send him on his way to Washington.
Where would a Democrat politician rather see Christie today? In Washington in place of one of their own, U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg. Or, at his U.S. Attorney's office in Newark, with subpoena power and the FBI on speed dial?"
