Quote of the day

“Receiving $74,000 in severance pay is entirely inappropriate and unjustifiable. No elected official is entitled to sick or vacation time. You don’t put out your hand and beg, you raise your hand and say ‘Thank God I was healthy.' There’s no reason for anyone to collect money on the way out the door or for overtime.” - Council President Andre Sayegh, candidate for Paterson mayor.

Quote of the day

"Federal prosecutorial tentacles would make an octopus envious. And so despite two marathon press conferences, a 360-page report produced after an internal investigation by Christie’s lawyer Randy Mastro and beheadings for much of his inner circle, Christie is actually in worse shape than he was in when the scandal first broke." - Jeff Smith, a former Missouri state senator, who spent 2010 in federal prison on charges stemming from a 2004 campaign finance violation.

Quote of the day

"The scandal hinted at a darker story line: that Christie's barrelling style, and the dealmaking that had secured his rise through New Jersey politics, might as easily undo him. ...Recently, [former] Governor [Tom] Kean, during a long interview in his office, in Far Hills, New Jersey...told me that he has reconsidered his support of Christie. Kean is now seventy-eight years old; he served from 1982 to 1990 and is a revered figure in state politics. ... 'He doesn't always try to persuade you with reason,' Kean said. 'He makes you feel that your life's going to be very unhappy if you don't do what he says.'"

Brendan Byrne carved on the wall.”
