Power Has Its Privileges
Senate President Stephen Sweeney famously called Governor Chris Christie a “rotten prick” last summer over the budget. Assembly Speaker Sheila has called Christie a liar, a bully and implied his his administration was racist. Christie just shrugs it off and keeps working with them.
Former Acting Governor Richard Codey, Sweeney’s predecessor, called Christie a liar earlier this week. Christie responded by firing Codey’s cousin from a $215,000 job at the Pork Authority and cancelling Codey’s State Police security detail.
Codey can take comfort in the fact that Christie is giving him more rough and especially tumble material for the paperback edition to his book and that he hasn’t tumbled as far as Jon Corzine.
