The Donkey's Bray - Tuesday, October 15, 2013

President Obama is urging you to support Newark Mayor Cory Booker in Wednesday’s special election – and to have a plan for voting. So do it -- make a plan for election day, tomorrow, Wednesday, October 16.

The President praises Booker's experience creating positive change that has improved people's lives, saying "Cory Booker has spent his entire life bringing people with different perspectives together, regardless of party, to take on tough challenges. Now more than ever before, that's the kind of leader we need in the Senate." We agree. And, like the President says, let's "send a message to the entire country about what kind of leadership we expect from our representatives in Congress...that we're better than the kind of shutdown politics we've seen in Washington."

The pain and suffering of Sandy survivors, struggling to rebuild their lives, is complicated by the inattention of an administration more concerned with late night television talk shows than recovery efforts.

And Now, Ted Cruz Cloned

Why is New Jersey electing a United States Senator on a Wednesday in the middle of October anyway? Why can’t everything be at the same time? Because Gov. Chris Christie says he does not want to “cause unnecessary voter confusion,” that’s why. Christie is up for re-election on Nov. 5, and you do not want writers scratching their heads about whose name to put at the top of the story. So the state will spend $12 million to provide the crystal clarity of a special Senate election on Oct. 16.

The Quashing of a Case Against a Christie Ally

When a 43-count grand jury indictment accused Sheriff Deborah Trout of hiring deputies without conducting proper background checks, and making employees sign loyalty oaths. Her deputies, the indictment charged, threatened one of their critics and manufactured fake police badges for a prominent donor to Gov. Chris Christie.

Then the state killed the case.
