Does anyone remember his former corrupt attorney general Zulima Farber? The corruption in this state is systematic. The political parties actually run the state. The governors are just replaceable parts. Regardless if it's McGreevey, Codey or Corzine it's all the same outcome. Before that witless Whitman was not much better. She just seemed better compared to Flim-Flam Florio.

This was my response to two different threads which applies here:

"Most of NJ will eventually become a place solely for the elite to live in with some "ghetto" areas for the extreme poor that the government will support them like in NY - it hasn't gotten to that point quite yet, but soon enough especially with the corrupt government bodies NJ always will have.

To me if one wants to become the ultimate crook, they become a politician in this state. It doesn't matter what party they represent either as it always comes out to be the same result in the end. I just see NO END to this whatsoever as because they know that they have NYC as their main attribute to raise the cost of living almost at will."

Not sure if he is a crook but it is impossible to get anything changed in NJ because you need to give and take with all the crooks under him.

He is surrounded by too much corruption. I'm interested in hearing more about these emails between him and the union leader.

His first Attorney General was an extremely poor choice of his. (An Attorney General quits because of her own ethics disgrace.)

I think Corzine's mother just voted in the poll. Either her or his labor leader girlfriend.

He has plenty of his own money to buy people off.

I said a fair job. I don't care who you are, you'd have to be a damn good politician to bring the state out of its rut.

That said, I plan on going into law enforcement and let's just say, if I were a State Trooper, I wouldn't exactly want protective duty of Corzine.

Respectfully, I don't think he's doing a fair job being he hasn't delivered on his promise of lowering property taxes - in fact they've only gone up.

NJ is 50 plus BILLION DOLLARS in debt - I'd like to see what rabbit the NJ government pulls out of the proverbial hat to pay this off. Also underfunded pensions, I'd love to see what will happen when the proverbial s_it eventually hits the fan.

Speaking of his mother. This is a fact.

When he was running for the Senate. His mother donated the max allowed to Bergen County ($32,000). Mind you, she was at that time 89 years old and living on teachers pension. The woman also lives in Illinois and has never been in NJ.

I just wonder where she got the money from?
