Eric Boehlert of Media Matters isn’t very happy with N.J. Gov. Chris Christie and his friendship with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Check out the tweet-storm of hate from Boehlert last night on Christie’s accepting of a free trip to watch the Cowboys-Lions NFL playoff game on Sunday:
Silence from the D.C. press is now defined as a big WSJ exposé on Christie’s business dealings with Jones which will probably inspire an ethics investigation in the state?
And does Boehlert really want to make private jet trips a 2016 campaign issue? If so, game on and we eagerly await details on all private travel paid for by convicted sex offender and Dem mega-donor Jeffrey Epstein and his pal Bill Clinton.
As we posted yesterday, via the Smoking Gun:
Epstein, who paid teenage girls for naked massages at his Palm Beach, Florida mansion, is a convicted sex offender whose circle of powerful friends has included financiers, celebrities, politicians, and scientists.
In fact, Epstein, 61, has maintained many of these relationships even after pleading guilty in 2008 to a felony charge stemming from a lengthy probe of his lewd interaction with scores of underage girls, many of whom were recruited while they were students at a Palm Beach high school.
While Clinton was never deposed [in a civil suit against Epstein], lawyers obtained Epstein’s computerized phone directory, which included “e-mail addresses for Clinton along with 21 phone numbers for him, including those for his assistant (Doug Band),” according to a court filing.
We’re just asking questions and like Media Matters, encourage the D.C. press corps to fully investigate all politicians and their travel funded by really rich people.
