Cha-CHING! Gov. Chris Christie Puts His Personal Chiropractor On State Licensing Board

Gov. Chris Christie Takes Care Of His Buddies, Puts His Personal Chiropractor On State Licensing Board

Gov. Chris Christies back must be feeling pretty good.

The Auditor has learned that when a spot opened on the state Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Christie chose someone he knows well: his personal chiropractor, David Allen.

Allen has since been confirmed. But the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is tasked with vetting candidates for various boards and commissions, didnt know Allen had the governor as a client.

I guess in the interests of full disclosure, the governor could have told us, said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Nicholas Scutari (D-Union). Why not? He got his personal driver on the parole board, referring to Christies campaign driver, Allen Delvento, who earns $116,500 for a spot on the parole board.

Apologies in advance if I put my apostrophe in the wrong spot (which I probably did).

6. not here in Floriduh
our buddy prickscott did away with those dumbass regulatory bodies that oversee things like dance studios, chiropractory, palm reading, automobile mechanics, and several other practices in order to create jobs.

Can you believe he hired 20 people as advisors at over 140K a year, they're all his friends so that's cool.

On a side note, now auto mechanics don't have to give you an itemized estimate, show you the parts they replaced and they can do more work (or not) and charge you without getting your ok in advance. Or they can keep your car until you pay off the bill and storage charges.

We are number one, we are number one, we are number one.
