Sloppy Dawg's Take On Corzine

Sloppy Dawg, who is one of the only legitimate liberal bloggers I have found so far in Jersey, gave an interesting perspective on the issue of Corzine's gift to his former girlfriend (Sloppy Dawg).

Sloppy Dawg reasons that since labor unions are expected to endorse Democrats, Corzine's gift to a prominent member of one shouldn't be examined to closely. However, it's hard to believe that his relationship to Katz was simply romantic. Any rising star in New Jersey politics understands the significance of labor boss, and hence, is naturally inclined to date a union leader rather than say...a non-union leader.

Nonetheless, Dawg also goes on to compare the allegations against Corzine versus those against Tom DeLay, the Republican leader in the House of Representatives. While Tom DeLay has actually committed House ethics violations by accepting vacations from lobbyists, Corzine is only guilty of acting "suspiciously". Of course, we must also keep that in mind when we examine DeLay's involvement in the shady deals concerning Indian Reservation casinos. Because again, he is not guilty, he is merely suspect.
