Corzine, Cash & Corruption

by Staff - October 24th, 2009 - New York Post

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine really has no shame.

Just hours after Bergen County's longtime Democratic machine boss, Joseph Ferriero, was convicted Thursday on three federal felony corruption counts -- which could land him in prison for 20 years -- New Jersey's governor proudly defended having written him personal checks totaling nearly a half-million dollars.

That's right: Corzine, the Wall Street multimillionaire, and his family have funneled no less than $441,600 of their own money to keep Ferriero's arrogant political machine rolling.

And Corzine claims to be leading the charge of ethics reform in the state.


Actually that expression of sarcasm is the same thing the writer of the article said. It is hard to comment on this article because corrupt Democrat machine politicians all over America have been pointing to minor Republican corruption and denigrating it for years. It is like the mafia complaining about the local bum begging on the street. The difference in scale is simply mind boggling. Yet the master of machine politics and his Democrat minions of greed and corruption continue to talk about transparency and openness of government. At the same time they are bribing the political machines with billions of tax dollars.

The arrogance cannot be matched. It is not just Corzine who has no shame.
