New Jersey’s king of conflicts of interest, David Samson, has resigned his job as Chris Christie’s corrupt Chairman of the Port Authority.
Bridgegate has brought to light numerous instances where clients of Samson’s law firm got huge contracts from the Port Authority, and Mr. Samson in turn got huge legal fees. As rocks started getting turned over, sleazy Sampson tried to recuse himself from a vote favoring one of his clients twoyears after the fact.
I’m glad he’s finally gone, but he needs not just to leave the Port Authority, he needs to go to jail.
Donald Trump is now coming out against childhood vaccinations, joining the parade of morons who think vaccinations cause autism. At least his birtherism didn’t really hurt anybody.
While vaccinations don’t cause autism, parents’ growing failure to get their children immunized is definitely causing outbreaks of whooping cough and measles, diseases which shouldn’t even exist in this country.
All part of the terrifying turn against science in favor of superstition and quackery.
Former NYC congressman and mayoral candidate Anthony “I’m not sure if that was my weiner” Weiner has joined Business Insider as a political columnist. The disgraced Weiner joins the disgraced Henry Blodgett, who has been banned from the securities industry for life.
But Weiner, unfortunately, hasn’t been banned from politics, and if you don’t think he still lusts after being mayor of New York, note that his new column is called Weiner!, just like the Broadway musical was called Fiorello!
