What would anyone expect after voting in a "Terpentine" as governor!

Remember that Terpentine is very flammable and this has proven to be so at this point.

Both parties share in the corruption family. I agree with you.

Governor Jon Corzine came into office saying that he was a corruption fighter. The Attorney General who he appointed was one of the first to go down in disgrace. Corzine supported her to the end. She felt herself and her lover were above the law.

Default Here's a little Corzine poll at: http://www.city-data.com/forum/new-jersey/138655-what-do-you-think-governor-jon-3.ht

Do you feel he is getting anywhere? Or do your think it is the same corruption as usual? (Or worse...)

Personally, I think the way the governor appoints our Attorney General as well as the head of the New Jersey Supreme Court helps corruption stay in business. Many states elect their state's Attorney General. New Jersey's governor has too much power.

Governor Jon Corzine has some ethical questions of his own. It's going to be interesting to see how his former relationship with a girlfriend, who was a union leader, turns out. With him running the courts of New Jersey and the Attorney Generals' office, the truth will probably never come out.

Here's a little Corzine poll at: What Do You Think Of Governor Jon Corzine...?

He is not doing too well in the poll.

Corzine and the press ruined Carl Katz's reputation. I know her. She's a remarkable woman who does not deserve the crap she's gotten thrown on her. Goes to show you how the wrong man can ruin your life.

Oh, and Jon Corzine does not run the Courts. The Judiciary is a separate form of government run by the Chief Justice. Corzine does not make decisions on the Judiciary's behalf. He only pulls the pursestrings of the employees (very hard too!)

Please. A ruined life? She a labor leader who lives like a multimillionaire and it's all some man's fault that the public is looking at the relationship between the two of them in a suspect manner?

Maybe to regular viewers of the Lifetime Channel it all seems so unfair.

She's a big girl and she made her own relationship decisions. Nobody forced her to get a wealthy, powerful boyfriend.

Maybe Cozine could throw me $6 million plus. I'll accept a ruined reputation.

I have had a passing relationship with some shady characters. It was a real issue with them to try to commit the wrongdoings which would not land them in Federal Courts. They all said that they knew lawyers who could 'get to' the Jersey State judges.

It never ceases to shock me, how corrupt Jersey is.

A woman I worked with had a dad who practiced international law. He said Jersey is the most corrupt state in the union. I had a law professor who said the same thing.

Now, this scandel breaks, with public officials taking bribes. I'll bet every little podunk mayor of every little podunk town was shaking in his boots when this happened. It is common knowledge that this 'money under the table' method is what cable companies did in order to get into our towns.

I heard on WABC the other day that in the last 5 years one hundred New Jersey officials were arrested.

I am real proud of Cory Booker, though, and what he is doing in Newark. God, talk about a scarey corrupt machine - only a young idealist would dare fight that slime that he replaced. To think of all the corrupt cops that had to be replaced. I am surprised that they did not kill Cory. I speculate that they must have had plans to, if they ever caught him alone. So there is a light shining in NJ, at least for me.

Would that the fair people of Passaic could find such a brave and bright person.
