Clinton Ally Launches Operation Pig-Gate

From oue friends at The Save Jersey Blog:

Regular Save Jersey readers know who is Ray Lesniak is but, owing to Governor Christie’s presidential ambitions, a lot of folks are tuning into this site (and the Jersey-centric issues we cover) for the first time. Like the vetoed pig gestation crate ban bill.
The relevant background:


That’s Ray. He’s a Democrat state senator with 36-years of Trenton time under his belt representing New Jersey’s 20th Legislative District (the Union/Elizabeth area). Senator Lesniak is no Christiecrat and never was, not even during the heights of the Guv’s popularity; he’s an old school activist liberal who was a primary legislative force behind New Jersey’s gay marriage legalization push and capital punishment ban. And he HATES Chris Christie (as illustrated above), beating the Bridgegate drum as loud as anyone (while his firm hypocritically profited from port authority lawsuits) and making a habit of bashing the Big Guy on Twitter with strongly-worded barbs.

Did I mention that he’s also a long-time Clinton ally? And it’s not just a casual acquaintance; here he is playing golf with Slick Willy back in 2001 (h/t NJBiz):


Lesniak served as New Jersey Chair for Clinton/Gore and Gore/Lieberman, respectively, and in 2011, he openly suggested that Hillary Clinton replace Joe Biden on the presidential ticket. He shortly thereafter begged her not to leave the State Department:
