I think no one really knows. From calling in an affluent Republican county - People already were concerned that both were corrupt - there's been lots of mud. Corruption was an issue before this blew up. At this point, it's not clear if this will backfire (it is pretty cheap) or work ( the ex-wife's comments hit his integrity).
5. It was a terrible tactic to use against Corzine. I, as
a woman, was offended by it. Maybe some other women will feel the same way. Divorces happen, both parties are upset, but to go over to the dark side to get in a few slaps on an ex-husband is really low.
I don't know the details of their marriage, like how long they were married, if she worked, stayed home with the kids, etc, but she is entitled to part of the money. If my husband and I divorced I would get 50% of his retirement when he retired. Exes are whore to be bought for their silence.
13. I think you have a point, but I don't understand why...

a wife would allow herself to be involved in the destruction of the career of the father of her children. From what I've read about divorce, it's better for children (even if the children are grown) if exes of both sexes don't trash each other, except in private conversation not shared with the kids.
18. I'm not saying she wasn't being petty, bitchy, etc Your right....
speaking as a step-mother trashing the other parent should be a logical no-no. Also, I'm not sure what she was trying to accomplish, exes are easily written off as "petty, jealous, etc". Not saying that's right also.
I just took offense as a stay-at-home mom for 5 years who just returned to work that people act like he was "giving" her money, as if it wasn't HER money also. kwim?
20. I agree on that! Especially wives who were there in the lean years...
many of whom worked while a husband got a graduate or professional degree, maybe raised the children virtually alone if a husband had a high-powered career (which Corzine certainly did). Wives earn their share. You're right -- it is her money.
16. My husband works for USPS, ex-spouses, if married for a certain
amount of years are entitled to their pension (well it's not a pension any more, kind of like a 401K now). That's the way it should be. Any spouse who stays home to raise the family doesn't really have a way to put money away.
19. She has every right to the settlement she received. That said, it is
very sad for the family on the whole that she is still bitter from the divorce, but infidelity is so difficult for most to forgive. My dad had an "indiscretion" well over 50 years ago, and my mother, now in her 80s still has not been able to trust him, let alone forgive him. They are still married but living apart and separate since they had a physical fight a few months ago that stemmed from that old hurt.
