Chris Christie: Wall Street lobbyist for Bernie Madoff

This guy may think he has a chance in 2016, but the dude has tons of baggage, so to speak. I remembered reading about this as the real reason he didn't want to be on Romney's ticket...

Please, Gov. Christie, run for president! I so want to talk about how, as you put it, you never even set foot in the Trenton state house until you were elected -- even though you were the NJ statehouse lobbyist for the Securities Industry Association, the Wall Street trade association, under Bernie Madoff.

Let's talk about what you achieved, since one of your primary lobbying projects on behalf of Wall Street was to win an exemption for securities fraud from New Jersey's Consumer Fraud Act. Straight shooter! Woo hoo!

Easy enough for just about anyone to remember: Lobbyist Chris Christie worked to remove securities fraud from a consumer fraud act on behalf of an organization run by Bernie Madoff.

And I haven't even gotten into how he and his brother bought him the U.S. Attorney's office. Bring it on, I say:

Worth a read. It's short, don't worry.
