Christie spends $4.7 million of Sandy money on ads starring him

Last edited Thu Aug 8, 2013, 04:12 PM - Edit history (1)




Chris Christie has released his first wave of campaign ads for the 2016 presidential elections! Oh no wait, no, these are not campaign ads, they are Jersey Shore tourism ads, canít you tell? They are public service ads to promote tourism! Because everybody wants to go to a beach full of Chris Christies. Thatís why it is totally okay for Christie to spend $4.7 million from Hurricane Sandy relief money with some PR firm called MWW ó which happens to be $2 million MORE than another bid ó on shameless self-promotion, or, as the always yelling Christie yells it, this selfless effort to promote tourism. These particular ads also cost more because they had Christie starring in them.

6. Stronger than the storm for now

But what if a Repuke was in office in your time of need? President Rand Paul would have told you to swim or drown.
