This is what happens when “moderate” republicans abandon their principles in the name of loyalty to a party gone mad. The AP reports:
A federal judge blasted former Environmental Protection Agency chief Christine Todd Whitman on Thursday for reassuring New Yorkers soon after the Sept. 11 attacks that it was safe to return to their homes and offices while toxic dust was polluting the neighborhood.
Oh, and in case there was any doubt about her ruling, the Judge added:
“No reasonable person would have thought that telling thousands of people that it was safe to return to lower Manhattan, while knowing that such return could pose long-term health risks and other dire consequences, was conduct sanctioned by our laws,” the judge said.
Whitman had no comment, according to a spokeswoman. A Justice Department spokesman said the government had no comment.
Bad news Christie – this IS your party.
