Chris Christie Racked Up $300k of Food and Alcohol on Expense Account

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spent $300,000 of a government state allowance over five years in office to buy food, alcoholic drinks and desserts, according to a new analysis of state records.

In addition to his $175,000 salary, Christie receives $95,000 a year for purposes vaguely defined in the state budget for official purposes like state receptions, operating an official residence, or other expenses.

The governor spent $82,594 at MetLife Stadium in what the publication calls “Christie’s most notable spending spree.” Between 2010 and 2011, Christie made 58 separate purchases at the stadium, which is home to the New York Giants and Jets. That’s an average concession stand bill of $1,424.
