Gov. Chris Christie Arrives at Son’s Baseball Game in Police Helicopter and Hanging Out in the Bleachers
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie arrived at his son’s baseball game on Tuesday aboard a new State Police helicopter and got into a black car with tinted windows that drove him 100 yards to the baseball field.
At a time when Republican Christie tries to destroy unions, slash the state budget and provide property tax relief through reforms public health benefits, the porcine Christie was ferried to the baseball field in a brand-new AugustaWestland helicopter, purchased at a cost to New Jersey taxpayers of $12.5 million.
The game was being held at St. Joseph Regional High School in Montvale in Bergen County. Christie watched the game from the stands, flanked by a cadre of State Police security guards.
Editor Note: NJ Gov. Chris “Porky” Christie said today he would reimburse the state for use of its helicopter amid a growing outcry he misused the vehicle to go to his son’s baseball game. I’ll be watching this one to see if he delivers payment.
