[BREAKING] N.J. Gov. Corzine Hurt In Car Accident
WBZTV.COM ^ | 12 APRIL 2007 | AP

Posted on 04/12/2007 3:53:15 PM PDT by Extremely Extreme Extremist

(CBS) GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. New Jersey Gov. Jon S. Corzine was injured Thursday night in a car accident on the Garden State Parkway, but a spokesman says the injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Corzine was elected governor of New Jersey in November 2006, soundly beating Republican businessman Doug Forrester in a race that set records for campaign spending but alienated voters with its mean-spirited politicking. With 97 percent of precincts reporting, Corzine had 53 percent to Forrester's 44 percent.

Hit and run - expect new laws in NJ with stiffer penalties for this type of accident.

Do you have any proof of that or is it just wishful thinking on your part?

Doesn’t look too bad from what I can see on the news video.

Nope. A way for Corzine to walk away from the current NJ pension scandal.

According to WNBC, Corzine suffered a broken leg and should be fine. The accident happened near Milepost 43 in South Jersey. He was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Atlantic City.

I've seen how people drive there, it was only a matter of time before some bigwig got involved in an accident. Maybe he will sponsor legislation to get people to drive the speed limit, or something.

My concern? I'm moving to NY in a couple of weeks, just ten miles across the NJ border. I expect I will be doing some driving in that state.

They are showing Corzine’s car on TV here. It looked like it was run off the road and hit pretty bad. The NJ State Police are looking for the hit and run driver by helicopter.

This has nothing to do with the story. If he had been a Republican that beat the pants off of a Dim, this paragraph would not be in the story.

I’m not saying they don’t get into accidents at all. I just think it’s really absurd to automatically assume that because someone got in a hit and run, it must’ve been an illegal.

Could have been a trooper car being driven by an illegal alien.

You have to understand the border bot mindset.

"All crime is caused by illegals."

Or the more common version, "All crime is caused by Hispanics," since all Hispanics must really be illegals.

I hope he is OK, and I wish him a full recover.

As to his life and his actions, he is a bad tree who produces bad fruit.

That would not be good for said trooper, especially if he values his job.

Thank you. That looks like a bad wreck. He’s lucky he only broke his leg and not his neck.

I’m assuming the trooper wasn’t an illegal. Which will be a great disappointment to many people on FR.
