Boss Christie … Jr

Not all of us would survive first adult contact with a full revelation of our college age selves. But there’s some pretty funny and quite characterologically consistent stuff in this piece about how Chris Christie cut his political teeth in student government at University of Delaware. Christie set up his own political machine, a corrupt one in the eyes of campus critics. He was elected president of the student government. And then when he left he arranged to have his future wife, Mary Pat, installed as his successor, even though he was no longer in school. And Todd Christie, Chris’s bro apparently managed stuff as “chairman of the election committee.”
