When Chris Christie completed out his second consecutive time period in January, it’s possible few had been unhappy to see the oft-maligned New Jersey governor go. Christie’s second time period, particularly, was riddled with controversy, from the Washington Bridge Fort Lee lane closure scandal, what ultimately grew to become referred to as “Bridgegate” — to being caught lounging on the seaside final summer time along with his household at a state-owned seaside home after issuing a authorities shutdown that closed state seashores to the general public, what ultimately grew to become referred to as “Beachgate.”
By June of 2017, Christie’s approval ranking was down to only 15 %, the bottom for any New Jersey governor in recorded historical past.
So it appears solely pure that Christie’s ultimate act as governor could be to stay it to the individuals of New Jersey one final time. In keeping with NorthJersey.com, Christie’s official portrait will value taxpayers $85,000 — greater than the price of work for his three predecessors mixed. Australian artist Paul Newton has been commissioned for the portray, whose portfolio apparently contains “royalty and a world pop star.”
Since he took workplace, Christie has spoken concerning the official image that possible will lengthy outlive him and the various web memes he’s touched off. And in his public life, Christie had earned a fame for having a style for luxurious when others paid the invoice.
As U.S. Lawyer for New Jersey, Christie was one among 5 federal prosecutors that the Division of Justice mentioned in a report “exhibited noteworthy patterns of improperly exceeding the federal government charge” for resorts, corresponding to a $475-a-night keep on the 4 Seasons Lodge in Washington, D.C.
On the plus facet, it appears extremely unlikely that Christie will ever be voted into public workplace once more, so that is in all probability the final time taxpayers must foot his invoice.
