BLOOD FOR VOTES:POLITICAL CORRUPTION AND THE NEW JERSEY BLACK BEAR HUNT
.

.

.
Eleven days before the 2009 New Jersey gubernatorial election, the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance (NJOA) spent nearly five times its legally allowed limit for campaign expenditures on a campaign rally for Christie. NJOA is a pro-hunting political action committee (PAC) whose mission was to both elect Chris Christie as Governor and to reinstate a black bear hunt.

Christie, who did not record the event in his campaign reports, rewarded NJOA by making the unprecedented move of appointing the PACʼs president to his Environmental Protection transition team that addressed hunting policy.Soon thereafter, a black bear hunting season was approved.
