Chris Christie in his masterful mea culpa melodrama declared that he is a "loyal person" and is "sad" at the disloyalty of some in his DeNiro-esque "circle of trust". One link led to another - as we all try to figure out how this GWB gridlock student came to pass. Rachel Maddow has been trying to connect it to the struggle with the Legislature over the progressive state Supreme Court that the governor is sworn to dismantle. But those pieces don't fall into place. Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg is from Ft. Lee but she did not take that bait when offered by Andrea Mitchell this morning.
That led me to this post by the Star Ledger's legendary education columnist, discussing the end of Associate Justice Helen Hoens' term of office. Though some judges might have stepped aside, she voted Christie's way even though her husband is a policy adviser to Christie - a lawyer and long-time Trenton Reporter for the Ledger - the State's largest. Though she was on the verge of qualifying for a full pension he dumped the veteran jurist for an undistinguished judge from south Jersey. So much for Christie's loyalty. - gwc
