  •  MF Global occurred *after* the Governorship (6+ / 0-)

    It has nothing to do with the way Corzine served as Governor. The worst thing that Corzine did in the highest office was not wear his seat belt in the back of a limousine.

    The fact that Corzine was having an affair with the head of the union that represented more than half the state's workers doesn't make him corrupt so much as stupid.

    In the lawsuit concerning MF Global that was released this week,there is absolutely no evidence that Corzine broke the law, or did any other thing that will require jail-time. It is a civil suit based on Corzine's fiduciary responsibility at the firm.

    Corzine should never be allowed near a financial trading firm at all, but that doesn't make him New Jersey's "most corrupt Governor." That sobriquet will be worn by Christie. Just read this story from just two months ago about how Christie uses his state's AG's office to protect his pals.  Christie just announced that he wants to promote his Chief of Staff to be the new state's Attorney General 10 days ago. The man is filling the state's top Justice positions with his law cronies. What can he be planning by taking over the state's ability to investigate and prosecute, hmm? I smell political purges via prosecutions on trumped-up charges.

    They say "cut back" - we say "fight back"!
