Corruption Scandal Hits Congress. Another reason to vote Daggett

The corruption in the two party political system doesn’t end in NJ. An ongoing corruption scandal involving members of congress just keeps getting bigger.

The seven members — five Democrats and two Republicansreceived campaign donations from clients of the firm while sponsoring federal spending on projects that benefited the clients. In exchange they have given billions of dollars of pork or earmarks to the lobbyists who where paying them off.

With the election just a few days ago, another corruption scandal of this magnitude just gives us one more in a long list of reasons to vote for Chris Daggett. A vote for Jon Corzine or Chris Christie just condones the corrupt two party system to continue to keep ripping of taxpayers to make its cronies rich.

Will Chris Daggett Run for President of the United States?

In an interview with the New York times, Independent Candidate Chris Daggett told NY times reporter David M. Halbfinger that come election day win or lose, thinking about using his campaign as a platform for “talking on a broader level outside of New Jersey about the independence movement.” What exactly does Chris Daggett mean by a “broader level” outside of NJ? Perhaps Chris Daggett will run for President of the United States. It is a possibility, voters this year are irate and independent and it looks like a trend that will not go away any time soon.

Daggett Hurts Corzine and Helps Christie

UPDATE FOR ALL THE PALIN SUPPORTERS

Chris Daggett is not affiliated with this blog. Sarah Palin needs to get her facts straight, when she links to this blog to provide evidence that Chris Daggett is lying about her. I am an independent blogger that is fed up with the corruption and the politics as usual in New Jersey. If Sarah Palin is really is an advocate for the people, she should have done her research on the candidate she is endorsing. The same reason that she is endorsing Hoffman, ending politics as usual, is the same reasons she should not endorse Chris Christie.

UPDATE 2

Here’s Daggett’s quote from MSNBC where Palin says Daggett made the claim, courtesy of TPM. Where does he say what Palin claims he is saying?

And I have had Republicans come in from Rudy Giuliani to Sarah Palin to Christy Mihos, who’s running for governor in Massachusetts — people in the New Jersey Republican Party. And to be honest with you, they don’t understand. I’m not running as a disgruntled Republican. I’m running as a person who believes that neither party has been willing or able to step up to the issues that face the state and make the tough decisions.

Will the GOP propaganda that a vote for Chris Daggett is a vote for Corzine Backfire? Latest polls show that certainly may be the case.

In the latest round of polling, just days before election day, a clear pattern has emerged. Chris Christie only leads in poll when Daggett is included.

Pledge Your Vote For Daggett

So for those who want to vote for Daggett but afraid it is a wasted vote or a vote for Corzine, show your support for Chris Daggett and make the I’ll vote for Daggett Pledge.
