Officers wound up finding 19 "blue star" ecstasy tablets in Shih’s car, each wrapped in its own little plastic bag.

The question is if this is a game changer for Christie in the corrupt cesspool of NJ.

Chances are 50/50 I’d say.

The excuse from the DBM will be that they didn’t want to report anything that might impact on the election. Of course, this excuse only applies to Democrats. Republican dirt can be dished up to and including the day of the election.

What gave the police “probable cause” to search his car when he was stopped for a traffic infraction?

I don’t suppose Mr. Shih still has his job with the campaign. If he does, I doubt he will hae it for long.

"Jason Shih" is listed online as a deputy assistant director of the campaign.

Nice going, Corzine.

By signing a revised law, Gov. Jon Corzine is authorizing cops to pull over motorists spotted holding and talking on a cell phone or text messaging on one. Before, drivers could be ticketed for those actions only if they were pulled over for another motor vehicle offense.

Posted on the other thread, I have informed, Drudge, Smoking Gun, Fox News, Glenn Beck. Please do the same.

Well, folks, I just called the East Rutherford Police Department and explained what WABC had reported on their web site and that WABC had just erased the web page about the arrest. I then asked the detective who answered the telephone if this incident did take place, namely an aide for Corzine was arrested for drug possession, and he said that this arrest did take place!!!

Googling “corzine aide OR arrested drug” produces nothing substantive.

We’re in the midst of a breaking story that is being covered up by the media!

Thanks for posting this.

Of course nothing is new here. The PLM/Progressively Liberal Mediots suppress bad news for their side and invent bs against our side like ‘Rush said racist things’.

Not much of a scandal, but I think Christie will win on Tuesday.
A block vote by insulted fat people will make the RINO Governor of New Jersey.
Seriously, New Jerseyans hate Jon Corzine, and will demonstrate that on Tuesday.

Just another of the usual long-haired, dope-smoking, maggot-infested punks that one is apt to find in the retinue of leftist politicians.

Thanks, Rush, for painting word pictures, LOL.

Wow how the story has ‘changed’ now!

Here’s what was reported by ABC.

Jason Shih, an Assistant Deputy Director to the campaign of NJ Gov. Jon Corzine was arrested last night on drug charges.

East Rutherford police say they pulled over the 25-year-old on Route 17 for driving while using a cell phone.

Police say they found 19 ecstasy pills and several hundred glassine envelopes.

He was charged with possession of a controlled narcotic and paraphernalia that is used for distribution.

He was released on $15,000 bail.

From the NY POST story updated recently:

"Shih told police he worked for Corzine's campaign, and had several campaign-related items in his car, police said.

" Corzine spokeswoman Elisabeth Smith said Shih is not on the payroll of the campaign or the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, and that the campaign doesn't know who he is.

Deny, deny, deny! Or Hillary style, I don’t remember.

This should get interesting. Corzine will make a deal w/the criminal and he’ll say he’ll go along w/it. Certainly, Corzine heard from the WH already.

The question is - will this hurt Corzine, or will it motivate his base of criminals and thugs?

For a Dem, crime is a resume enhancer........especially in New Jersey.
