Sleazy GOP Lies from 101.5 FM – Daggett doesn’t like black people

It is just beyond my comprehension what the GOP doesn’t get about the fact that the sleazy campaigns based on negative attacks and misinformation is not going to win elections. Its the issues stupid! Haven’t they learned that from the McCain and Palin campaign?

Someone should send them that memo, because NJ’s most listened to Radio Station NJ  101.5 FM has become a mouthpiece for the GOP lately spitting out every piece of misinformation about Chris Daggett that they can dream up. It’s particularly shocking because over the last 4 or more years the station has gained a lot of respect among voters for its constant coverage and pressure on corrupt politicians in Trenton gaining a reputation as a true advocate for the citizens of NJ.

But today, the Republican Party and 101.5 FM has sunk to an all time low making up a lie live on air that Independent Candidate for Governor Chris Daggett doesn’t like black people. This has to be one of most sleazy kind of lie and character attack to falsely claim that Chris Daggett is a racist.

Daggett Demands Investigation of BILLIONS Missing From NJ School Construction Fund

In the 3rd Gubernatorial Debate Chris Daggett Nailed Christie and Corzine for Corruption

Daggett went on to call for an investigation into over $6 Billion dollars that is missing from the NJ Schools Construction Fund. Governor Corzine responded that he has already put all the proper controls and regulations in place, but that doesn’t answer the question of where billions of dollars went.

Christie replied that if he is elected governor he would open an investigation. But my question to Christie was the US Attorney General while all of this was happening and Corzine was Governor. Why wait until becoming governor to launch an investigation into billions of dollars missing? And Governor Corzine why haven’t you launched an investigation?

Chris Daggett Wins 3rd NJ Gubernatorial Debate

Chris Daggett wins the 3rd governor debate making it a clean sweep for all three gubernatorial debates in the 2009 NJ Election for Governor.

Corzine said he wont’ cut taxes and stated his plan is more of the same, literally. He said  does have a plan, the one he already has in place. Perhaps someone should let him in on the secret that NJ voters are not happy with his current plan.

Christie continued to offer no details about his budget plan. Christie spent most of his time bickering.  Corzine and Christie went back and forth at each other with more negative attacks on each others character. Christie took a good shot a Corzine’s plan of more of the same, saying someone should inform Corzine that voters are dissatisfied with his current plan

Mean while Daggett continued to tout his plans pointing out that both the Democratic and Republican Parties have made a mess out of the state and he is the only candidate with a plan to get the state out of the mess.

Daggett also hung both Corzine and Christie and Christie out to dry when asked about how to fight corruption. He said to Corzine and Christie the best way to fight corruption is lead ead by example and pointed out that both Christie and Corzine are engaging in illegal campaign financing and pay to play. It was so bad that neither Christie or Corzine could defend their actions. Instead Corzine acknowledged that he and Christie where engaging and such actions and said they need to stop.

Daggett then went on to call for an investigation into billions of dollars that have been stolen from the NJ State Schools Construction Fund.

Daggett opened the debate by pointing out that he is now polling in the low 20’s, which is a psychological barrier that may convince many voters that a vote for Daggett is not a wasted vote.

In his closing argument Daggett called upon all voters to stand up against the corrupt and broken two-party system and tell them its time to end politics as usual.

Chris Christie to be investigated for misconduct as US Attorney General

More Christie Corruption: Chris Christie to be investigated

An Associated press release reported the NJ Senator Frank Lautenburg has called for an investigation of Chris Christie requesting a Chris Christie investigation for misusing his power as US Attorney General for political purposes.

The Senator Lautenberg’s call for an investigation of Chris Christie comes on the heals of months of complaints that Christie abused his power as Attorney General to bribe and extort his political opponents. That fact that he did so is not much of a secret, as newspapers have been questioning whether Christie was abusing his power to make a play for NJ Governor for years.

When Christie resigned from the US Attorney General’s officials close to him said they have long figured Christie would not announce his resignation and if possible political run in fell swoop. Instead they said Christie would resign in two step to avoid questions about whether he was engaged in political strategizing while running the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

It was wide reported long before Christie resigned that he would be run for Governor of NJ.

In 2006 Christie illegally leaked word that his office was aggressively investigating Senator Menedez just two months before the election. The investigation was over a rental deal that a House Ethics Committee had already investigated and given approval for.

Critics claimed the leak of Christie’s investigation was nothing more than an attempt by Christie to tarnish the Senator so he would not be elected. Mendendez was never charged with a crime and Christie’s charges against the Senator where found to be baseless and led to a widepsread consensus that Christie was politicizing his power.

In February of 2008 the New York Times, reported Christie was politicizing his power and asked for an investigation be made into Christie:

He began an investigation of Senator Robert Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, late in a hard-fought election campaign. The charges now appear baseless, but at the time the news provided a big boost to Mr. Menendez’s Republican opponent. Mr. Christie went against a long Justice Department presumption against opening investigations or bringing indictments right before an election, to avoid affecting the outcome.

During congressional testimony in July, longtime Bush advisor Karl Rove said he had conversations with Chris Christie about running for governor while Christie was serving in the non-political position of U.S. attorney. The conversation Christie had about running for Governor was in 2006 and is a direct violation of the Hatch Act.

Notably it was around the same time that Christie leaked news his investigation of Menedez that Christie violated the Hatch Act and spoke with Karl Rove about the running for Governor of NJ.

Once again the justice department will have to write  new laws to outlaw what Christie has done over his career. Just like they had to in H.R 1947 in regard to  Christie’s several multi-million dollar extortion scandals.

Either Christie is just extremely amoral or he feels that for some reason he is above the law and doesn’t need to follow the rules.

APNewsBreak: NJ senator calls for Christie probe

TRENTON, N.J. – New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg is calling for a federal investigation into allegations that Chris Christie, the Republican candidate for governor, used his office for political gain while U.S. attorney.

The call for a Justice Department investigation follows months of accusations that Christie politicized the office of the top federal prosecutor.

Christie denies the charges.

However, he acknowledged having had conversations with Bush strategist Karl Rove about a possible run for governor. U.S. attorneys are barred from conducting political activity while in office.

Lautenberg, a Democrat, says it’s “shocking” that Christie appears to have conducted a political campaign from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Chris Christie Will Allow Gov Employees To Stay In $400+ Hotels

Chris Christie has been running on a campaign of not tax hikes and cutting wasteful government spending. But today that Associated Press reported that Christie plans on relaxing the state policy on Business Travel to allow government employees to stay at 4 star hotels.

In a state where why are trying to balance an 10 billion budget deficit with no where to come up with the cash, the last thing we need is a politician in office the will increase wasteful government spending by allowing state employees to stay in 5 star hotels like the Ritz Carlton and the 4 Seasons at over $400 – $500 a night like Chris Christie did himself while he was the US Attorney General.
