You have to be a dumbass or a crook to work for Corzine in the first place.
The article quotes a Corzine campaign official saying they don’t know who he is. “Three times tonight you will betray me”
"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.
even if some Corzine supporters stay home out of disgust. A stretch i know crediting libs with a sense of morality.
Democrats would immediately make a commercial out of an equivalent event. Does a Republican have the intestinal fortitude to use it.
You read my mind.
Part of the new ACORN outreach program.
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.
For a Dem, crime is a resume enhancer........especially in New Jersey.
Ah the Ecstasy and the Agony of it. Apologies to Irving Stone.
A “Jason Shih” is listed online as a deputy assistant director of the campaign.
And the earlier report said the Corzine campaign didnt iow who he was????
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.
I guess it all depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is.
ACORN may now have to double its efforts to pull this one out.
Alleged Corzine quote upon hearing of the arrest: "Oh, Shih!"
Corzine staffer says “Shih is not on the payroll of the campaign or the New Jersey Democratic State Committee”
Once again it comes down to the definition of what “is” is. Perhaps Corzine should be asked if he “was” on the payroll.
That’s what I’m afraid of.
“several tickets to tomorrows rally with President Obama at Newarks Prudential Center were found in his car.”
So this explains the glassy-eyed euphoria at these rallies.
Listed where online? Link?
several tickets to tomorrows rally with President Obama at Newarks Prudential Center were found in his car.
Possibly courting indecisive indies?
Maybe he needed the drugs to peddle attendance at the rally?
Take one, get one free.
Star-Ledger just posted another article that says
As hes exiting the vehicle, hes stating its not mine,’ Schanel said. ‘He just said Im assistant deputy director of Gov. Corzines campaign, and they rented this vehicle for my use.
