'Jersey Guys': Take Our Governor, Please!
March 12, 2009 at 7:08 AM (PT)
MILLENIUM Talk WKXW (NEW JERSEY 101.5)/TRENTON afternoon "JERSEY GUYS" hosts CASEY BARTHOLOMEW and RAY ROSSI are fed up enough with Gov. JON CORZINE and his tax increase proposals to offer a "Governor Swap" to any other state that will have him. The promotion, based on the TV show "WIFE SWAP," would send CORZINE, some NEW JERSEY-made delicacies (YOO-HOO, TAYLOR PORK ROLL, M&MS), and a state legislator to be named later (based on the other Governor's performance) in exchange for "anybody else, including ARNOLD." CORZINE has proposed tax increases for residents and business in the face of the economic crisis, similar to SCHWARZENEGGER's CALIFORNIA budget,
While CORZINE is still in TRENTON, BARTHOLOMEW and ROSSI are also asking listeners to register their disapproval by sending empty wallets to CORZINE in the "JERSEY GUYS Empty Wallet Campaign." Thousands of people have either sent or pledged to send their empty wallets to the Governor so far. The hosts also plan another rally at the State House similar to last year's rally that brought over 2,000 people to protest outside the capitol.
