Yes, we know you’ve heard more than enough about Chris Christie lately.
This mention of the embattled Jersey governor is relevant, though, because it concerns a small but potentially important edit to a press release.
The story revolves around a senior center built in Jersey’s Essex County in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. According to a report published last week by the New Jersey Star-Ledger, Christie diverted $6M in federal recovery funds to the project despite the fact that the surrounding area “was not particularly hard hit”. The key justification for this funding was that the project would house seniors from nearby towns who had been displaced by the storm.
And that’s where the press release comes in.
