Christie Campaign Pokes Fun At Corzine In Mock News Report
By Andrew Ramonas | August 27, 2022 12:21 pm

It seems like every hour the New Jersey media is reporting on a new controversy with ties to former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie, who is the Republican running for New Jersey governor against Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine.

On Tuesday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michele Brown resigned after news surfaced that Christie had loaned her $46,000 but did not report it on his tax returns or financial disclosure forms. It was also reported this week that Christie had been ticketed in 2005 for speeding and driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle. Read our previous report here.

Now, in a mock news show from the Christie campaign, “Flash Silverstein” reports that Christie stole a penny from the penny tray at a local convenience store and Corzine is on the attack.

Here’s the report:

“This morning, Chris Christie stopped for a bottle of water at his local convenience store. At the cash register, Christie nabbed a penny from the penny tray to cover his $1.36 tab, but did not put a penny back. The Corzine campaign bought their 16th ad space on to launch a new attack ad asking, ‘If he’ll take your change, what else of yours is really safe?’ “

If you have your own satirical breaking news headline, the Christie campaign says you can post it at #notnews on Twitter.

    You forgot to mention that Christie continues to hold a 11-point lead over Corzine in the poll released today.

    Or are you truly a Corzine flacky?

The Senate Democratic leader describes the Republicans' refusal to hold hearings on President Obama's eventual Supreme Court nominee "historically unbelievable and historically unprecedented."
