Another Christie/Walker Parallel: Early, Ugly Campus Campaigns

I'd thought the strongest connection between GOP governors and presidential wannabees Scott Walker and Chris Christie was their reliance on ethically-challenged senior staffers, but look at this amazing coincidence:

Walker's run for student body president at Marquette was marred by claims of rule violations and bullying tactics - - see this account in The Marquette Tribune - -  and so was Chris Christie's! 

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is no stranger to accusations of political bullying and backroom dealing like those at the heart of the bridge scandal.
TPM [Talking Points Memo] has found one of the first times the brash political brawler faced such claims was in the mid-1980s when he was an undergrad at the University of Delaware.

Two great examples of what Reagan youth produced- a generation of GOP psychopaths who think the only use for politics is to accumulate money and power. No "governance" involved
