I've been busy deleting most of the hundreds of emails I'm getting today from campaigns I either contributed to or somehow got my info. (Phoenix City Council??). But among those I didn't delete was for Barbara Buono. (Contribution link here.) She's an excellent candidate, but she needs funds to try to inform the people of NJ that Christie is no moderate (as anointed by the "serious people).
Some will not doubt comment that this is quixotic, she's way behind in the polls, etc. But her campaign can nonetheless, if nothing else, educate people in NJ and elsewhere that Christie is a fraudulent moderate.
My brief against Christie always begins with his cynical and horrible veto of the Hudson River rail tunnel -- in which he single-handedly consigned his state's and NY's residents to years of greater pollution, congestion, hours lost and jobs lost. That is a scandal of epic proportions and it is a disgrace he is hardly held accountable.
If he gets the GOP nomination (probably not, but don't write him off), people should also know:
Chris Christie Vetoed Same-Sex Marriage
Chris Christie Is No Friend to Workers
Chris Christie Doesn’t Believe in Universal Pre-K
Chris Christie Misuses State Funds
Chris Christie Supports the Ryan Budget
Chris Christie Vetoed a Hike in the Minimum Wage
Chris Christie Vetoed Equal Pay Legislation
Chris Christie Targeted Poor Families in His Budget
Chris Christie Cut Funding to Family Planning Organizations
Chris Christie Is Proudly Anti-Choice
Finally, don't forget his cynical manipulation of election dates at not insubstantial taxpayer costs, so he won't be running the same date as Corey Booker.
So despite his bullying and braggadocio, he's a coward
Give a contribution to Buono today..
Stop Christie in NJ before he gets a chance to make a national race.
