This qualifies as the Outrage of the Decade. Once again, the Democrats illustrate why they are more interested in power, for power’s sake… than actually helping the people they are always opining about. (Hat tip: Michelle Malkin)
Governor’s Office Steered Terror Aid – Newark Star-Ledger
The homeland security grants sparked controversy in July when The Star-Ledger reported that 93 percent of the $23 million handed out since 2002 had gone to districts controlled by Democrats. At the time, Codey spokeswoman Kelley Heck said the governor’s office “didn’t play a role in the awarding of those grants.”
More than $8 million was allocated for the program this year with 94 percent going to districts controlled by Democrats. The money was part of the 2005 budget approved six weeks before McGreevey announced his resignation last summer.
When the grants were distributed in April, more than $7.8 million went to Democratic legislative districts. Municipalities in Republican districts got $523,454, despite requesting a similar amount as Democrats.
By the way, this pattern of corruption began as policy under Jim McGreevey…. you know the one the gay community wants to hold up as a proud “gay American.” No thanks.
One final note…. the only winner in this outrage is the Star-Ledger. This is the kind of reporting, regardless of which party is doing it, that the media should concentrate on. Not silly conjecture over whether the most photographed “undercover” CIA agent had her cover blown by anyone other than her blowhard husband.
