Chris Christie Gives Voters a Real Reason to Oppose Him


If you’ve been looking for a reason to dislike Chris Christie other than his robust waistline, perhaps some bald-faced hypocrisy will do. According to travel records, the former U.S. attorney, who’s campaigned on a platform of reducing government waste, had taxpayers pay for his $400+ a night hotel rooms and went over the government’s hotel allowance on 14 of 16 business trips he took in 2008. Christie says he only stayed in expensive hotels when those that came in at the government rate weren’t available. Or comfy enough, presumably. [1010 Wins]
