Is Democrat NJ Governor Candidate Buying Black Votes?
The Democrat, who is in a tight race for governor, donated or loaned more than $2.5 million last year to black churches. He has received the endorsement of more than two dozen black ministers.
Corzine, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, has defended his giving and cited the millions he has given to other organizations as well, including Planned Parenthood and The Vaccine Fund, which finances immunization.
Corzine may have given to other organizations, but not other churches. As a white man, giving money to black churches, but not to any others, he is blatantly buying votes. It may be legal, but is it ethically right?
