Christie politicizes NJ Supreme Court then tries to blame Senate President Sweeney
Only governor lard ass could be this arrogant, obtuse, and dishonest.

Standoff between Gov. Christie, Sen. Sweeney heightens politicization of N.J. Supreme Court
Published: Sunday, December 26, 2010, 9:25 AM Updated: Sunday, December 26, 2010, 9:27 AM

By Chris Megerian/Statehouse Bureau

"By the time delegates gathered to rewrite New Jerseys constitution after World War II, the states court system was in a rut, considered by some the worst part of an already troubled government.

"New Jersey courts have changed relatively little since the time of George III, and the intricate judicial system is puzzling to the lawyer as well as to the layman," read one description published in 1939.

The state emerged from the constitutional convention in 1947 with an entirely new, streamlined court system. At its pinnacle is the New Jersey Supreme Court, which became nationally recognized for its judicial innovation and integrity. Although its progressive rulings have been celebrated by liberals and pilloried by conservatives, the court has largely avoided being sucked into the cauldron of politics.

Until now. The court is in the midst of an unprecedented crisis, dragged into a high-stakes controversy because of a standoff between Gov. Chris Christie and Senate President Stephen Sweeney that has lasted for seven months with no end in sight."

Same shit these republican creeps always pull. They decry activist judges while appointing activist judges.

Sweeney, keep stonewalling this fat jerk even if it's until the next election.

although criticism of republicans is afforded a much broader leeway than criticism of democrats, we still do not allow criticism like "lard-ass" and "fat jerk".
