I had heard as you may have that Governor of New Jersey Chris Christy is being investigated by the Obama Justice department for overspending on trips while serving as Attorney General of New Jersey. I hadn't heard any details and was concerned that someone who is such a fiscal conservative could have been living large on the taxpayers’ dime.
Fox and Friends broke the story this morning with figures. The Justice Department reviewed 23 trips taken between 2007 and 2009. By determining what the cheapest accommodations available were they have determined Christy could have paid $2176 less over those 23 trips.
Really? Really Obama? Really Eric Holder? You decided to drop charges against a Black Panther standing in front of a polling place with a 14 inch baton in a holster at his hip. You decided to START OVER prosecuting KSM (Khalid Sheikh Mohammed) despite the fact that he had been found guilty by a military tribunal. KSM has admitted he was the mastermind of the 9/11 attach and had asked for the death penalty. TWO YEARS LATER, Eric Holder says he is close to a decision regarding where the new trial for KSM will take place.
Still the DOJ had the time and resources to comb through the old expense reports of a popular Republican Governor looking for dirt. Despite their partisan efforts all they come up with was alleged over-spending by comparing the lowest possible rate with the rate Christy paid. This was brought up during the election and dismissed as nonsense. As Governor Christy said, "There is a limited number of rooms available at the government rate, if you get one you get one if you don't you don't.”
With Obama taking an entourage of 3,000 to India and Nancy Pelosi using a military jet to get from D.C. to California weekly at a cost of over $20k per trip they have a lot of nerve trying to sully Governor Christy with this petty partisan bull S#%*.
