Politics 2016 - The Gossip Edition

There is no reason that any of the information contained within this post should be used as a reason to vote for or against anyone.  Family members can't be controlled.  Candidates shouldn't be saddled with the baggage of others, no matter how closely they are related.

That said, this is a great story.  And it's one of those that can be told with just the facts.

Chris Christie was the U.S. Attorney who, in 2004, prosecuted Charles Kushner.  There was no question of Kushner's innocence; he pleaded guilty to 18 felonies, including illegal campaign contributions and tax evasion and witness tampering.  He received the maximum sentence.  The witness tampering is especially delicious. Kushner hired a prostitute to seduce a cooperating witness.  That witness was his sister's husband.

Juicy, yes, but why is it relevant?

Only because Charles Kushner's son, Jared, is married to Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka.

Only because Jared Kushner is described all over the interwebs as a close adviser to Donald Trump.

Only because Chris Christie is heading Trump's transition team.

Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall when those three are in the same room?

As I said, it's a delicious story, one that I just had to share.


  1. WOW! I'm sure there isn't any animosity toward Christie from the Kushner family.

    I didn't know any of this, but thank you for sharing.

    So depressed today. Cannot deal with the news. :(

    Have a great weekend.
