The New Jersey crook of the day

An embarassment of riches.

Today’s thieving bastard is democrat State Senator Wayne Bryant, who is the chairman of the Budget and Appropriations Committee (i.e. the Money Committee). It seems that according to a Federal Monitor’s report, which will be formally issued tomorrow**, in 2003 Senator Bryant leaned on the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (“UMDNJ”) to have himself hired as a “Program Support Coordinator” (a position that did not exist prior to his hiring) for $35,000 per year. Link.

You might ask, what does a Program Support Coordinator for UMDNJ do?

In Senator Bryant’s case, the Program Support Coordinator didn’t do much of anything.

Apparently, Bryant showed up almost every Tuesday from 9-12, and read the newspaper. Now that's a job I could handle.

I always wanted Robert Osborne's job, since all he has to do is watch movies and say something about each of them. I like movies. But this is far, far better.

I want to be a Program Support Coordinator!
