    I don't know - both sides of Christie look kind of heavy.

    Good stuff.

    Christie is going to make a career over making Democrats look like vindictive idiots.

    Here's the Inspector General of the United States (Team Obama) going after Christie for excessive travel costs.

    Literally going back years to make accusations of wasting hundreds of dollars - not even thousands, but hundreds of dollars - and it's clearly disputable.

    Unbelievable.

    OIG for the DOJ is not a political playground.

    Riiiiight.

    But next time find a case that someone, anyone, will truly get angry over.

    Here's a governor literally slashing a budget by billions and there is a 3 year investigation of a he-said/she-said $200 overcharge in a hotel?

    Anyone who thinks these charges have teeth is a f'ing idiot.

    It is going to give him the floor to point out how petty and ridiculous his detractors are.

    No offense, but there have been similar parallels here on JI over this governor.

    Do you understand the job of a OIG? Gov't travel is a very scrutinized thing for obvious reasons, no where in the report does it state it was criminal. He was outside of the guidelines, he would be the one who would decline travel for his employees if they could not give a very good reason why they could not stay within the DOJ travel guidelines.

    Since you brought it up, here are some sketchy political moves made by Governor Christie:





    His brother Todd spread hundreds of thousands of dollars around the Republican Party in the year Chris Christie became United State Attorney.

    nytimes.com/

    Christie gave his ex-boss John Ashcroft’s firm a $50 million no bid contract to act as a Federal Monitor.

    nj.com


    Christie Took political advice from Carl Rove while working as US attorney. Many believe this is in violation of the Hatch Act.

    northjersey.com



    He appointed his top aide Ralph Marra as the council to the NJ sports and exposition authority at a salary of $195,000 per year. Governor Christie political MO is to rail against anyone in state government having a greater salary than he does. Governor Christie makes $175,000 per year.

    northjersey.com

    And I saved the best for last:
    Governor Christie’s ex-driver collects a state pension ($90k) and a state salary ($115k). The Governor placed his pal on the state parole board

    Just to be clear, are you suggesting that someone shouldn't be allowed to carry a state pension and state salary at the same time?

    I didn't think you were allowed to do it.

    I found this. http://www.mycentraljersey.com/artic...pass-committee Apparently it applies only to elected officials. So it's not illegal or "sketchy." But I guess Buster is still griding that axe.

    I don't care if he's Republican, he's got stones and isn't full of sh*t.

    You can say anything you want about the release of the report, but that does not take away from the substance within the report. DOJ has policy and Christie chose to ignore it. Pretty simple and not the end of the world.
