He was introduced by none other than the head of the Ocean County Republicans, George Gilmore. Gilmore said he is hoping Ocean County this year can break the record number of votes in Ocean County for Christie that Ronald Reagan got for his second term in 1984. George Gilmore has been involved in the Republican Party since the Reagan years.
Most importantly he Is mentioned in an FBI document recently made public suggesting that Gilmore knew about the coming raid, although Gilmore says he was just repeating rumors — a well-known phenomenon in New Jersey politics.
In a September 2009 interview with the FBI, Al Santoro — a former executive director of the Ocean County Democrats, who pleaded guilty to taking bribes — recounted an exchange with Gilmore.
“Santoro advised that approximately one week prior to the July 23, 2009, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) raids, he was told by Gilmore that there was going to be a lot of arrests north of the Raritan,” an FBI summary of the interview says. “Gilmore did not provide any more details and did not say who told him.”
Chris Christie who Gilmore endorsed and supported in Ocean County was the head prosecutor in the Corruption sting.
Chris Christie is very proud of standing up to the unions that he feels are destroying our state, and hurting the taxpayer. What he needs to do is stand back and see what is truly killing our towns, our county, our state and our country; the unrestrained corruption that leaves the hard working middle class struggling to keep its head above water while elected officials and their friends live the life of Riley while blaming all of our ills on the less fortunate.
