Christopher Christie

As the United States Attorney from New Jersey since 2002, Chris Christie has set records for the prosecution of public officials – and impressively, not one political figure charged by his office has ever won an acquittal. But lately, Christie has lost some of his Teflon coating: he’s faced criticism for awarding mega million dollar no-bid federal monitor contracts to ex-Attorney General John Ashcroft and others with political connections – events that have caused the Justice Department to rethink their handling of deferred prosecution agreement, and led to a tough New York Times editorial. Still, in 2007 he ended the political careers of three State Senators and two Assemblymen – something most party bosses only dream of doing.
