New Jersey Politics, Drugs, Money & George Soros

Just when you think New Jersey politics can't get worse, it does. The latest flap involves who else but our own Governor 'Gay American' Jim McGreevey. This time, he's gone against bi-partisan opinion to ram through a state-wide needle exchange program. Citing gubernatorial mechanisms put in place during WWII and designed for emergency use during war-time crisis, the Governor has now managed to disenfranchise the legislature, who's function it is to do precisely what McGreevey went around them to do on his own. And this after the legislature heard both arguments and determined the needle exchange was a bad idea. What's behind it all? Money and influence for starters and George Soros' Drug Policy Alliance, in particular. That's right, the UN loving, Bush hating, Kerry funding, anti-second amendment liberal-socialist billionaire's organization has apparently been throwing money around in New Jersey where it gets the most bang: in the offices of our elected officials. This has the makings of a real controversy, so keep your eyes on this one....
