As Bridgegate continues to snowball, Bloomberg has reported that the Christie election campaign team is trying to use leftover campaign funds to pay for their lawyers.
Would you like some context? How about this: In 2010, when Christie prosecutorial target Wayne Bryant was headed to jail, he attempted to use leftover campaign finance funds to pay for his lawyers. What did the NJ State Supreme Court think of this.. er, efficiency? It went a little something like this:
“…contributors do not expect that their candidate’s election will be a stepping stone to a criminal indictment.”
And that’s one to grow on.
