New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine has been constantly in the news because of the tight race with Republican Christie and repeated Obama campaign visits to shore up Obama’s image and influence. However, there is a lot of information about Corzine’s record on taxes, shady investments and ties to corruption figures.
The Corzine Times is a website devoted to covering stories about NJ Governor Corzine.
“The Failed Join Corzine 2005 Tax Plan… How many broken promises do you count?”
“The state, with the highest property taxes in the nation, is home to six of the nation’s 10 most expensive counties, according to the Tax Foundation, a nonprofit group that analyzed Census data released this week.”
“Gov. Jon Corzine has a stake in a private hedge fund related to the corporate owner of four New Jersey casinos. The Corzine hedge fund is TPG-Axon, while its founder is Texas Pacific Group (TPG). They share the same address and some of the same people as well as the same name.”
“The bi-state agency formed to combat corruption within the New York and New Jersey ports became riddled with abuse — misusing federal Homeland Security funding, hiring unqualified cops, and allowing convicted felons to get jobs. In a scathing 67-page report, the New York Inspector General said the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor had failed in its duties.”
“Michael Madonna… symbolizes just about everything that was wrong with the waterfront commission. His conflicts of interest were rampant.”
“And we would like to know how he held on to it until last week, despite the fact that much of the top staff of the failed agency, including his New York counterpart, were gone last year. New top officials have been brought in and sweeping reforms have been put in place.”
“Jon Corzine won the governorship of New Jersey four years ago pledging to bring needed change to a state defined by corruption and the highest property taxes in the country.
And four years later, things did change. The state’s Democratic political establishment became more corrupt than ever and its tax burdens heavier than before, in part due to a pay-to-play culture of corruption the governor did little if anything to combat and a bunch of new fees and taxes Mr. Corzine enacted in the midst of the recession.”
“The state’s $28.6 billion budget, which could be approved by the Legislature as early as today, includes an estimated $75 million to be raised from a tax increase on health and dental plans.”
With corruption ties, tax hikes and ruining the economy, Jon Corzine looks like Obama’s kind of guy.
