Donors Sidestep Law to Aid Christie

The New York Times looks at how political donors legally prohibited from giving to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) are aiding him through the Republican Governor's Association instead.

"The association has, in turn, poured $1.7 million into Mr. Christie's re-election effort... Mr. Christie's close relationship with the association provides a playbook for how carefully choreographed independent spending campaigns can undermine the rules meant to curtail the political influence of government contractors; New Jersey's pay-to-play law strictly limits the participation of state contractors in political giving."
