Corzine disagrees with Obama’s ban on lobbyists in government positions

While almost everybody with a conscience understands that appointing lobbyists to government positions reeks of conflict of interest, Corzine is balking at Obama’s ban on lobbyists using their connection in government positions to forward their own agendas rather than the good of the public.

In New Jersey, there are currently 226 lobbyists serving in governmental positions. And we wonder why this state is so screwed up?  Obama is correct on this issue, but Corzine is refusing to cut the graft and inside deals, even though it has driven this state to the brink of bankruptcy.

Christie is disappointing in that he refuses to rule out continuing this practise that serves only to drain state coffers and reward those with lax ethical standards.
