New Jersey COLA Wars (5) : Random Thoughts (BTW Chris Christie Is Toast)

My experience in the courtroom this week got me to thinking about three issues that have not received enough attention:

  1. Why isn’t every judicial hearing recorded?  Technology makes it as easy as flipping a switch and there is far more useless material using up DVD space these days.  In a trial where the meaning or inflection of a word or phrase can be crucial it’s ridiculous that so much has to be needlessly left to recollection.
  2. Nobody covered this trial but me.  If anybody has a link to an article please forward it.  Here is something that impacts 800,000 government workers and 4 million taxpayers and no media seems interested.
  3. Why is nobody blaming the actuaries yet?

Finally, in the last hour it broke that Chris Christie may be ratted out and the hounds are baying. The debate may now switch from president/governor to impeach/imprison.

      From what I’ve heard, David Wildstein is saying Christie knew of the GWB lane closings in advance. If that’s true, Christie needs to pay …big-time.

      But perhaps David Wildstein is fabricating it because he is either pissed at Christie (for being hung out on his own) or looking for a “deal” by implicating the BIGGER (no pun intended) fish …. Gov. Christie.

      On June 3 the explored the possibility of CC naming himself to fill the Senate seat left vacant by the death of Sen Lautenberg. They said this was not without precedent and had been done in the past (Sen Manchin then Governor of WV appointed himself to the senate). In hindsight this might have been good for him politically. Things would most certainly be different today.

    Good time to re-read “The Soprano State”, its still in effect and still amazing. Most of the characters haven’t disappeared from the NJ scene and are still hidden somewhere in the taxpayer trough.
