Chris Christie Spent $82,000 On Snacks At MetLife Football Games

New York Magazine – New Jersey governor Chris Christie is a big football fan, but he is also apparently a big fan of snacks at football stadiums. Accordingto New Jersey Watchdog, Christie reportedly spent over $82,000 of taxpayer money on concessions at MetLife Stadium. Christie paid for food and drinks at MetLife with a debit card 58 times over the 2010 and 2011 NFL seasons, accruing a bill of $82,594. That means he spent an average of nearly $1,500 on food and drinks every time he attended a football game. The money came from Christie’s state allowance, a $95,000 sum he’s given on a quarterly basis to be “used for official receptions on behalf of the state, the operation of an official residence, for other expenses.” Hot dogs and beers obviously qualify as “other expenses.”
