Blue Jersey reports: Chris Christie, a US Attorney engaged in partisan activities

Huntsu at Blue Jersey has this interesting twist on the US Attorney scandal: questioning why prosecutors who are charged with policing our elected officials (ie. New Jersey US Attorney Chris Christie) are swearing in Republican officials and making speeches at these events.

Seems like a pretty clear conflict of interest to me.

Christie is not only using his office to swear these people in, but adding his credibility to the people he swears in. This is the US Attorney who made his reputation busting public officials standing with a Bible inducting people into office.

Each time he stands there reading the oath of office for a politician he is essentially saying, "I bust bad guys, and I wouldn't be here with this wonderful elected official if he (or she) were a bad guy!"
