Harvey, Corzine, Katz & Codey
- Acting Governor Codey's office spearheaded the investigation into gasoline price gouging but Peter Harvey jumped in front of the cameras to take credit for it;
- Harvey's attempt to take over the New Jersey Boxing Commission ended up with him being fined $1500 by the state's ethics board; and
- Harvey may be looking to take the position as head of the Boxing Commission once he (finally) leaves office as attorney general.
For more on Harvey's recent shortcomings, go here. None of this paints a pretty picture of General Harvey.
But that's not all! Ingle also discusses the recent endorsement of Corzine by a group of New Jersey ministers. Interestingly, at least two of the ministers received money from Corzine -- one received a $1 million donation and the other a $800,000 loan. Didn't Corzine's ex-girlfriend Karla Katz (you know, the head of the state's largest public employee union and recipient of almost $500,000 of Corzine's cash) endorse him sometime after she received her money?
Read the rest of the column. It has some other tid-bits about donations Corzine has made to schools and education groups (normally a good thing, but not so if your property taxes actually go up because of it) and how Codey is filling every empty position he can with his cronies.
I'm hoping that the Trenton Democrats are all sent packing in November.
Remember, register to vote by October 11, 2005 for the November general election.
It's no coincidence that Chris Christi finds corruption every direction he turns and Harvey (or any other NJ AG) can't find it in his own office.
