I just wonder where she got the money from?
She probably got the money from him.

I don't think i've seen so much ignorance in a long time. There is a war going on and all you people care about is bashing Corzine's mom. Pathetic.

Corzine has no intention of lowering property taxes and he raised our sales tax - not just to 7% but to about 34% when you take into account all the things that are now taxable that previously weren't. It's unbelievable that people still support him! He doesn't want to make the hard choices needed to brijg down the cost of government and actually lower property taxes. We need to consolidate some our towns, but no one wants to hear that. He raised our taxes and now is planning on either monetizing the parkway and turnpike or raising tolls or both. He supports the unions completely at the detriment of New Jersey tax payers.

Unless people really start caring about New Jersey, stop falling for the same old tricks - (you know that this years property tax rebate is just to get through this election, the rebate will be eliminated or lowered next year) - nothing will change in Trenton.

Besides talk, there is plenty of corruption... Check this link out. McGreevey & Torricelli: NEW JERSEY'S SLEAZY POLITICS

Corzine is just as bad. Maybe, even worse!

Default Corzine's First APPOINTED Attorney General Quits Due To Her Own Ethics Violations...

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 finally found where I placed the article about Corzine's first Attorney General.
