2016 GOP Presidential candidate Rand Paul says that fellow White House hopeful New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may be violating his own law by campaigning frequently out of NJ, and therefore Christie should resign.
He also called on Rubio to show up to work in the Senate or quit collecting a taxpayer-funded check…
According to The Hill:
“Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is criticizing Gov. Chris Christie (N.J.) and Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) over their job attendance, telling his 2016 presidential rivals to show up at work or resign.
“Chris Christie and Marco Rubio can lob accusations of who works less all they want,” he tweeted Wednesday.
“They should both try showing up for work,” Paul added. “Show up or resign/give back your pay.”
Paul said Christie’s attacks on Rubio for missing Senate votes were hypocritical.
“Chris Christie signed law requiring N.J. public employee to be residents and spend majority of time there,” he wrote on Twitter. “He should follow it or resign.
“Chris Christie has spent 219 days outside of N.J. yet runs on being governor,” Paul continued. “He may not even be a resident, never mind Gov.””
