I’m not surprised by PolitickerNJ’s latest article which claims that Christie has tried to “bully” partisan attackdog Yyvonne Segars into resigning. She’s no saint though as PolitickerNJ points out:
“In 2008, state agreed to settle a lawsuit alleging that Segars improperly fired a deputy based on her political affiliation, just weeks before Gov. Jon S. Corzine announced plans to nominate her to be a Superior Court judge.
The state agreed to pay $250,000 to Christine Leone-Zwillinger, a former deputy public defender, who was a supervisor in a unit that represented children who were abused.
A month after Segars took office, Zwillinger was fired.
The judgeship was scuttled when Republican state Sen. Gerald Cardinale blocked her nomination based on Zwillinger’s court case.”
Segars is basically going to remain in power until the Senate Democrats confirm Assistant Deputy Public Defender Joseph Krakora as her replacement. The Senate Democrats will never let it happen.
