In Case You Missed It, my story on how the Christie administration has used federal funds for foreclosure aid ran in yesterday's paper:
Struggling New Jersey homeowners, facing a quickening rate of foreclosures, are supposed to have a lifeline: the HomeKeeper program, run by the state and funded with $300 million from the federal bank bailout.
But 15 months after the program was launched, the state says only 10 percent of that money has been spent, to help just 750 homeowners.
In Case You Missed It, in yesterday's paper I took a look at some of Gov. Christie's recent jokes about Jersey, and how that jibes with his criticism of those who joke about Jersey:
TAMPA - In a warm-up speech before his keynote address at the Republican convention, Gov. Christie was giving the North Carolina delegation a pretty spot-on Southern accent. That followed a touching story about the Romneys coming over to the Christies' for lunch.
And then, at the end, he gave them Jersey.
