I’ve been ignoring the stories about Chris Christie’s expense reports, because I travel to New York for work a lot and it really is tough to get midtown hotels much under $300 a night sometimes. But $236 is a lot for a ride from downtown Boston to Logan:
In Boston, Christie could have taken a cab for the four miles between his luxurious hotel and the airport, but he instead took a $236 car service. In London, Christie’s drive to the airport cost $562. He had us pay for all of this, too.
I’m sorry, but that is just plain wasteful. There’s no two ways about it.
For Christie to present himself as some principled opponent of government waste is laughable.
