Five days after Gov. Chris Christie urged the news media to “take a bat out on her,” meaning Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen) for taking a $36,000 annual public pension while continuing to be paid $49,000 as a legislator, the governor’s office said Monday he will not be offering an apology.
Weinberg, 76, and other Democratic leaders have charged the remark shows insensitivity toward women, especially the physically abused.
“No,” Michael Drewniak, Christie’s press secretary, said when asked if the governor would apologize to Weinberg and if he had any additional comment.
I’ll only add that Corzine beat Christie among women by a mere five points. Think some of the 45% of women who voted for Christie might be starting to have some buyer’s remorse?
And don’t worry – he won’t won’t stop. He can’t. It’s who he is.
