Christie Spent $82,594 At Football Concession Stands

You just can't make stuff like this up:

Chris Christie racked up a $82,594 bill at the concessions operator at MetLife Stadium during the 2010 and 2011 football seasons, the New Jersey Watchdog reported on Monday as part of a broader look at how the New Jersey governor spent $360,000 of his state allowance over five years.

The New Jersey governor spent $300,000 of that amount on food and alcohol, the report said, and pointed to the stadium bill as the most notable spending spree.

The governor used a debit card on 58 occasions to pay Delaware North Sportservice, which handles concessions operations at MetLife Stadium during New York Giants and Jets games, according to the report.

 The report says Christie’s grocery bill shrank after the surgery. Christie bought $64,687 in groceries in the 38 months leading up to the medical procedure, and then only spent $31,236 for the 26 months after the operation.

A Christie spokesman defended the expenses, including the concessions, which the report said did not come with any receipts, business reasons or names of individuals who benefited from the spending allowance.

$300,000 of his $360,000 state allowance on food and alcohol.

This dude wants to cut your Social Security benefits and raise the retirement age, he wants to come back and hammer the NJ pension program for a second time (after refusing to pay the state's obligations to the funds), but he has no problem dropping more than a quarter of a million on food and booze, 30% of which was spent on beer and nachos at Jets and Giant games.

You really can't make this stuff up - nobody would believe you.
