Ruthless Ambition: The Rise and Fall of Chris Christie by Louis Michael Manzo

In this searing tell-all, former New Jersey State Assemblyman Louis Manzo recounts an extraordinary tale of political ruthlessness, corruption, and greed while also telling the story of being caught in the center of one of the most egregious political scandals in modern-day history: the Bid Rig III sting operation masterminded by Governor Chris Christie. Manzo discusses how the blind ambitions of Christie and his staff entailed capturing a governorship and the patronage jobs that accompany it, and then parlaying that office into a shot at the presidency. Big Boy then makes the convincing case for how the governor is not the champion of reform he is depicted as, but rather a sinister political figure deftly vying for a seat in the Oval Office, making this book a must-read for anyone with an interest in the 2016 presidential election.

How could a man like Chris Christie get within shouting distance of a seat in the Oval Office? What does this say about our Justice system, and about us? If you think you know the whole story of Christie's rise and later fall from grace-think again. In his searing tell-all, Ruthless Ambition: The Rise and Fall of Chris Christie, former New Jersey State Assemblyman Louis Manzo recounts an extraordinary tale of political ruthlessness, corruption, and greed while also telling the story of how he was caught in the center of one of the most egregious political scandals in modern-day history: the Bid Rig III sting operation, masterminded by the then United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey and soon-to-be Governor Chris Christie. Manzo shows us how the blind ambitions of Christie and his staff centered on capturing a governorship and the patronage jobs that accompany it, then parlaying that office into a shot at the presidency. Meticulous in backing up everything he says with objective legal documentation, Manzo makes a convincing and disconcerting case for the governor as an unbridled and sinister political figure who made the most of a seriously flawed Department of Justice and overall judicial system to feed his megalomania and desire for power.

As a reporter, I used to cover suburban Philadelphia's Delaware County , a place so corrupt, it's hard to describe to outsiders because you'd sound like a paranoid loon. Delaware County is even used as the Republican suburban counterpart to Richard Daley's Chicago machine in one political science textbook. I had brunch yesterday with a reporter I used to work with, and mentioned I was reading this book. He laughed and said, "You know, every time I hear a story about Christie, it sounds just like Delaware County. That's why I think it's almost cute, how indignant author Louis Manzo is over the many, many abuses of power that led to his own indictment for bribery. In "Ruthless Ambition: The Rise and Fall of Chris Christie," the former New Jersey politician rails against corruption in our justice system -- and specifically, abuses by the prosecutors Christie left behind, prosecutors who were eager to get positions in a Christie administration, he says. And well he might.
