Carla’s Brand of Commie Chic

The president of New Jersey’s largest state employees union, Carla Katz, formed a limited liability corporation, for which she is the sole member, to buy a $1.1 million Hoboken condo in the Hudson Tea Building. She named the corporation Neruda Hoboken.

Neruda Hoboken is the namesake of Pablo Neruda, a now deceased Chilean communist, celebrated poet and politician.

The Hudson Tea offers a “lifestyle of comfort and indulgence” according to the building’s website. A lifestyle Carl Katz has apparently acquired through her benefactor Governor Jon Corzine and the exploitation of state workers and New Jersey taxpayers.

Let’s review how the chief executive of Neruda Hoboken, LLC lives:

Katz bought her condo for a cool $1.1 million in cash. She snagged the “premier corner location, directly above Giants quarterback Eli Manning”, with magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline.

Katz bought out her ex-husband’s share of their Alexandria Township home with a $470,000 interest-free loan provided by Corzine. Later he forgave the loan and paid the $160,000 in taxes owed on the gift.

Having secured a state exemption from building restrictions in the Highlands, Katz has begun a 3,200 square feet addition to her Alexandria Township home, situated on 10 acres in Hunterdon County. She will also be adding a new pool, spa and septic system. Records show no loan or mortgage on this property.

While her Alexandria home improvements are under way, Katz is living in a four-bedroom rental house in Pittstown.

Katz has a full scholarship at Seton Hall University Law School, which she was awarded one year after Corzine gave the university' a gift of $1million. Corzine wrote the personal recommendation for her application.

She has two children attending a private school in Pennsylvania where tuition is $22,000 a year, per child. Corzine “hypothesized” he may have “pre-funded” the tuition.

A lifestyle of comfort and indulgence for Katz - call it Carla’s brand of commie chic.

Funny how Corzine was able to spin an obvious conflict of interest as a personal affair. By "funny" I mean sad. I don't think he's much of a leader for the great state of New Jersey.

Let's not forget using a non-NJ company and non-union labor (probabbly illegals) to do the addition to her house.

And another thing.... In the Ledger today Corzine keeps saying that his paying her bills is ethical. That's the wrong ethics question. I don't care who's bills he pays. It is, however, unethical for him to be negotiating with Katz under these circumstances.

I wish the Ledger would focus on that aspect of the story!

Out of NJ, who in their right mind would consider Corzine a leader. I am also curious, which state do you currently live in since you are out of nj?

Carla is the archetypical orwellian communist figurehead; mouthing the platitudes of democracy and egalatarinism while furtively working behind the scenes to subvert the very ideals she mouths. She disenfrachises her members, uses her position to wound the labor movement for her own selfish gain while portraying herself (replete with designer suits and nosejob) as an advocate for the little guy. Her life is a cynical charade that all but the most delusional can see through. The fact that Corzine would chose to date this fraud speaks volumes as to his character.
