Corzine gets a payback from Rutgers




It's Wednesday, so that means a new cartoon over at PolitickerNJ.

This story just caught my attention the minute I read it. I can't say it any better than Wally did over at PolitickerNJ:
Governor Jon Corzine is already getting a return on his investment. He announced this week that he would contribute $1 million to Rutgers University as part of his decision to help raise money to privately finance a stadium expansion. Now Rutgers has announced that they have hired Jeannine LaRue, Corzine’s Deputy Chief of Staff, for a new position to advise Rutgers on government relations at an annual salary of $250,000 – about double what she was making in the Governor’s office.

I seems to me that Corzine's biggest enemy sometimes is his own checkbook.

Here's the sketch:
