Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen) today called Governor Christie’s latest abuse of taxpayer money a classic example of his “do as I say, not as I do” attitude.
“Using the State Police helicopter to ferry himself between personal and political events is one of the most egregious abuses of taxpayer dollars, particularly for a Governor who prides himself on being the only one watching out for the taxpayers.
“This is a classic example of the Governor’s ‘do as I say, not as I do’ attitude. I can’t remember how many times I had to skip political events because my children had games or school activities. Leaving in the fifth inning to meet with wealthy Iowa political donors says something about the Governor’s priorities.
“Perhaps his presidential courters can help him foot the bill so our taxpayers aren’t on the hook for such perks when he is calling for sacrifice.”
