POLITICS: Abuse of Office Claims Yet Another NJ Democrat

Jon Corzine's Attorney General resigns "after a state investigation found that she had violated her own department’s code of ethics by going to the aid of her live-in companion during a traffic stop.". This is not to be confused with Bob Torricelli's shady use of his Senate office, or Jim McGreevey giving his lover a state job for which he was unqualified, or Corzine himself having an affair with the head of a key state employees' union and paying her off to the tune of several hundred thousand dollars.

"Culture of Corruption," anyone?

Usually when someone is causing a lot of comotion about an issue, it is because they are trying to coverup their own problems.

NJ is a mess. But the voters don't seem to care. Folks might be saying the same of us after a couple years of Spitzer and Silver calling the shots in Albany.

abe:

Are you living in the same state as I am? The one that has a republican state senate and republican governor? To say that democrats have been "calling the shots" here is ludicrous.

Should have taken a play from the Republicans and simply changed the code of ethics.

NJ voters are getting what they deserve. Then they'll reelect the same crooks and get more of what they deserve. stew in it.
