Governor Christie fires a shot at Mayor Fulop from the right

We as a city simply can't take umbrage anymore when the Governor levels his guns at Jersey City as the Mayor is out there on the same playing field of high-stakes and high-cash world of New Jersey politics. Christie has said if he deals with anyone on moving casinos north it'll be Senate President Steve Sweeney. Christie said he's not going to deal with an obstructionist like Speaker Vincent Prieto who wants to play ball with Mayor Fulop on casinos. Said Christie:

At a press conference this afternoon at Monmouth Medical Center, Gov. Chris Christie denounced Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop as a political boss controlling an obstructionist Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-32), who’s more concerned with playing politics than solving the fiscal troubles of Atlantic City, in the governor’s opinion.

“I’m not going to negotiate with two groups of Democrats,” Christie told reporters, indicating his preference for an Atlantic City intervention bill championed by Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) of which Prieto is wary.

“…Mr. Prieto wants to play public sector union politics for Hudson County political boss Steve Fulop,” said Christie decrying what he sees as too-generous to public sector worker measures favored by Prieto in his version of an AC takeover bill.

Hudson County political boss? Ouch You don't want that tag but it may be inevitable. More at the link...
