I'm pretty curious: does anyone know what this WMUA
probe is really all about? Like the juicy behind-the-scenes stuff?
Not much new to report on the Bayshore Journalista-front. I work nights, which has been doing all sorts of wackiness to my person. Progress is slow but steady on the novel writing, determined little tortoise that I am. Wish I could move faster than continental drift but some things take time, I guess.
I want to shed some of this blogging boredom and post something interesting. So in that spirit, here is the U.S. Attorney Chris Christie & co. money trail I've chirped about but never really got around to posting. In the next couple days, I'll put up screen grabs of the ELEC reports.Christie family and the NJ Republican State Committee PAC
* Before 2001
, Chris Christie donated $800
to the NJ Republican State Committee. (His relatives didn't donate to the state committee before 2001.)
* From 2001 to 2004
, Christie and his family donated $144,000
to the NJ Republican State Committee. $74,000
of that was donated about three months before he learned of his appointment

*Note: This isn't a judgment on the U.S. Attorney, who has done an admirable job in focusing on the state's corruption. These are just black-and-white money facts. Make of them what you will. I just think it's better to exist in an atmosphere of full disclosure.
