Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I think you’d be hard pressed to find another example of hypocrisy from a Governor of a state who is taking a hatchet to the budget and constantly crying poverty, yet uses taxpayer provided transportation for personal use.
Blunt-talking New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who has made ethics and government reform a centerpiece of his Administration, raised some eyebrows yesterday with hisdecision to take a state helicopter to his son’s baseball game yesterday afternoon. Moreover, he left the game in the fifth inning, presumably to make it back to Princeton for his meeting with a group of Iowa activists who had flown to New Jersey to try to convince the governor to run for president.
If you’re so worried about the budget, couldn’t that helicopter flight, which I’m sure must have costs thousands, been avoided? He’ll be asked about it, bark that it’s his right, his family comes first and the media will drop it.
