Joanne Corzine: “He'll probably let New Jersey down, too”

From the woman who knows Jon Corzine the best:

"When I saw the campaign ad where Andrea Forrester said, 'Doug never let his family down and he won't let New Jersey down,' all I could think was that Jon did let his family down, and he'll probably let New Jersey down, too," Ms. Corzine said.

His ex-wife, Joanne Corzine, had resisted talking about him, though she issued a statement after their divorce became final in 2003, saying that politics had had a noxious effect on their lives. But last week she said in an interview that she believed that Mr. Corzine showed poor judgment early in his political career in making endorsement deals with controversial Democratic leaders like George E. Norcross III of Camden County and Stephen N. Adubato Sr. of Newark, and several politically influential black ministers - transactions that Republicans have used to question his independence and integrity.

"All day, people around him were telling him to do whatever he wants to do to get ahead, things that the Jon I've known since we were in high school would have never been comfortable with," she said. "And I think it's made him lose sight of anything but success, getting to where he wanted to get."

His ex-wife said that she noticed a change in her husband soon after he decided to run, in 1999, for the Senate. She said she had been taken aback by the blatant way party leaders bartered their endorsements in return for campaign contributions, and thought that her husband would be, too. But he brushed aside her concerns, calling them naïve, she said.

As his campaign and political goals became more consuming, Mr. Corzine distanced himself from friends and family, finally ending the 33-year marriage and leaving his old life behind, she said.
You can't say we haven't been warned!

An Ex-wife saying things an ex-wife says...

An ex-lover saying things an ex-lover says....

There is no shocker here. And motivational narcisism is a trait all politicians have.

Don't you want someone who goes all out, a goal oriented person is precisely what this state needs.

And those goals are well meaning, and well grounded.

Media, yes we know you think anyone that dares speak the truth about Corzine's ethics is a liar.

Just one thing though, we know Mrs. Corzine is telling the truth because the millions Corzine paid to the party bosses, power brokers, George Norcross. etc. is a matter of public record.

Corzine is motivated alright, motivated by his own ambition.As Mrs. Corzine said, he will do anything, say anything, and enter into agreements with anyone for the benefit of Jon Corzine and to hell with everyone else.

In our opinion he uses people and when he's gotten what he wants, he dumps them aside. We think New Jersey's citizens are next in line to be dumped on should Corzine be elected governor.

His record to the effect of how he treats citizens speaks volumes.

And I didn't say anyone was lying about his personality. I simply said..

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

And some of those scorned women wind up in newspaper articles. I am not doubtful of Mrs. Corzine's statements, but I will not vote based on them.

Oh, my goodness, I never thought about it this way! What if Corzine wins the election and then dumps us for a younger state? I don't know what I'd do!

I hear Hawaii's been hitting the gym! I'm not really worried about Alaska, but they do always say it's the ones you least expect...

This whole thing is pathetic... again Doug has not one redeemable quality about him... you really should be embarrased for supporting this petty child.

At 12:27 PM, Blogger Matthew Weng said...

Any chance that you will write about the rumors of Doug "never let his family down" Forrester cheating on his wife with a former Miss New Jersey during his senate campaign? http://politics.nexcess.net/insideedge/2005/11/the_late_accusation_game.html

Probably not. Rumors can only be spread against Democrats with a lead in the polls, I guess.

No, we thought we'd let you carry the scoop. Funny that no one involved in the Forrester rumor has come forward to corroborate it. Seems to us Joanne Corzine has confirmed what is well known, and we are not talking about the affair with Carl Katz. We are talking about Corzine's corruption:

"She said that when she campaigned by his side five years ago, she urged him not to get involved with Democratic political bosses, but he contributed millions of dollars to them to 'buy their loyalty.'"

And "She added of her ex-husband, 'He was very Machiavellian in what he wanted. Whatever it took to get there was what he was going to do.'"

There is a difference, no?

Funny that no one involved in the Forrester rumor has come forward to corroborate it.

Is that your standard for repeating a rumor? It needs to be corroborated? Is that a double-standard for yourself or did your standards change in the past week?

Reporters are after a videotape of Corzine, inebriated, making statements that will damage him beyond belief with African Americans.

This will not have effect as a matter of fact, that's what I suppose.
