The Washington Post reported on who got hired to be on Chris Christie’s presidential campaign staff with a lengthy list that made one wonder how so many people have the wherewithal to sign up for a fledgling campaign operation that is likely hurting for money (unless Ken Langone changes his mind).
The answer is that they should have money saved from the last few years – from jobs that Christie got them and New Jersey taxpayers paid for in one way or another:
Maria Conella (communications) : $140,000 state job
Christie for governor campaigns – 2009 & 2013:
Bill Palatucci: among other government favors and contracts – $1.7 for his law firm to obstruct justice
Cam Henderson: $160,000 to run the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund (with no prior experience running a charitable foundation) after being Mary Pat Christie’s chief of staff and director of protocol.
