New Jersey Gov. says he wants to ‘take the bat’ to a 76-year-old widow

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) begged reporters Wednesday to "take the bat" to a 76-year-old lawmaker for collecting a pension and a paycheck.

Democratic state Sen. Loretta Weinberg, a widow, said she was forced to begin collecting her pension after her financial advisor invested all her savings in Bernie Madoff's ponzi scheme.

"After a major financial setback resulting from my so-called 'Financial Advisor' investing all my money (including my IRA) with a man I never heard of (read: Bernie Madoff) a colleague suggested that I would most likely qualify for my pension," Weinberg wrote in a blog post.

3. He's being especially negative because Weinberg was Corzine's running mate
and he's still in "attack mode." Because he doesn't have a "govern mode."

7. Is that a misprint? Fred Flintstone often uses a CLUB, not a bat.

8. "No, no, I meant to say...take it to the ol' bat. No, wait..."
Don't laugh...when they're in a hole, those guys always seem to find a bigger shovel.

9. Iowa's Republican governor
is simultaneously collecting a pension from his first term (1983-1999) as governor, and his salary for his current term as governor. Wonder what Christie would make of him.

Signed,
Thought he sucked 28 years ago and think he sucks now
