U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie Has Democrats Rattled

U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie has prosecuted more than 100 public corruption cases in New Jersey since becoming U.S. attorney in 2002, and he hasn't lost a single one.

Christie is handing out subpoenas to find out who benefited [from $378 million in Christmas Tree Grants]. As a result, the rumor mill is abuzz that the FBI wired a legislator, and as many as 15 "public servants" may go down.
The folks at Blue Jersey are becoming concerned and developing conspiracy theories:

Chris Christie may be the most honest US Attorney in history, but he is also a powerful Republican partisan who is beholden to a powerfully partisan Bush White House for his job while others in the same position are losing theirs.

The subpoenas for the legislature came right while the Democrats were making noises about passing major tax reform and corruption reform legislation, blunting the political gain to be made.

We've got a US Attorney, Chris Christie, and he has not been fired.
Eighty-seven others, including Christie, have not been “fired”. But, seven Bush appointees being replaced by seven Bush appointees and its time for congressional Democrats to issue subpoenas. As the Blue Jersey blogger writes:

Ooooh! Congressional subpoenas of the Bush admin on firing US Attorneys. What fun!
U.S. Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States. You may recall that when President Bill Clinton took office one of the first things he did was to fire every U.S. Attorney - except one, Michael Chertoff, then U.S Attorney for the District of New Jersey - saved by Senator Bill Bradley. Clinton’s mass firing of 93 U.S. Attorneys was unprecedented, but within the President’s authority.

It’s within Christie’s authority to investigate and prosecute corrupt politicians. Do the folks at Blue Jersey think he should demure so as not to “blunt” Democrat political gains from making election year “tax and corruption reform noises”?

So far Chris Christie’s political indictment to conviction batting average is 1.000. It looks like this hard hitting U.S. Attorney has Democrats rattled and resorting to the old standby - blame the “powerfully partisan” President Bush - this time for corrupt NJ politicians from the Democratic Party.

If Union City Mayor/Assemblyman Brian Stack gets found guilty of any wrongdoing as a result of this investigation it would be the biggest collapse of a powerful politician in Hudson County history since Bill Musto.

If Stack gets done in, it will be because of his own greediness. Being an Assemblyman isn't enough for him so he now feels the need to go after Bernad Kenny's State Senate seat. All at a point in time when dual office holding is being heavily scrutinized and spoken out against.

Furthermore, if Stack goes down, what kind impact would that have on other dual office holders like Nick Sacco who has been a Teflon Don of sorts for many years?

Only time will tell I suppose.

Thank you US Attorney Christopher Christie.

The FBI and the Department of Internal Affairs should investigate the Burlington City Police, Prosecutor Lou Gallagher, Public Defender Kurts, Judge Montalto and their association to Burlington Twp. Detective Britzinhoffer before another human being becomes the target of malicious prosecution.

New Jersey needs a productive oversight/ethics committee to sanction police, prosecutors, and judges that blatantly abuse their power.

There are police, prosecutors, and judges in this state that have integrity and we need to restore our faith in the system by removing individuals who have lost site of what the justice system is.

I haven't seen Christie speak, but I've read some stuff about what he has said, and it sounds to me like he'll be the Republican Spitzer-esque candidate in '09. He could prove to be a similar juggernaut if the Dems don't clean things up.
