Chris Christie never slept here

In his comments to the Asbury Park Press editorial board, Chris Christie responded to an Associated Press story, based on a release from the Corzine campaign, that Christie occasionally billed taxpayers more than $400 a night for stays in luxury hotels and exceeded the government's hotel allowance on 14 of 16 business trips in 2008.

Christie said he always attempted to find a hotel room set aside at the government rate. But sometimes those rooms were taken, and taxpayers ended up paying $3, $8 or sometimes as much as $200 more a night. "There are only a few hotel rooms in each hotel that are reserved for government rate,'' Christie said. "If you got them, you got them. If you didn't, you didn't. I wouldn't have slept in the park.''

I guess he never heard of "Holiday Inn Express".

  1. The Star Ledger's endorsement of Chris Daggett is great news. I wish the republicans would stop the Bush/Rove Fear mongering. There is obviously a consensus that a vote for Daggett is not a vote for Corzine, except among those who use mass psychological terror to promote their own agendas.

    Facts are facts and how you ignore them I don't know.

    I say no to Chris Christie because

    The Chris Christie mafia connections

    Christie’s multiple multi-million dollar bribe scandals.

    Illegal campaign finance by Christie and Corzine

    Voting for the lesser of two evils . It is still a vote for evil.

    The Chris Christie style of justice.

    I can go on and on about both Chris Christie and Jon Corzine. The skyrocketing cost of living, the Exodus of jobs, residents, business and income from the state, corrupt politicians from my local municipality, to the county court house, to Trenton all the way to Washington.

    That's why I refuse to vote Corzine or Christie. I am Voting Chris Daggett and so should you

    Only voter's have the power to change the government. We must refuse to be held captive to the broken two-party system that has brought a plaque of scandal and corruption into our government by fear of voting for a third party. Its time to send a message to politicians in NJ and all across the country. Its time to end politics as usual.
