Rick Merkt vs. John Inglesino

Last August, Rick Merkt says John Inglesino, a close friend of Chris Christie,  offered him a position in a “Christie Administration” if he would abandon his plans to run for governor. Merkt says the conversation took place last Aug. 26.

Inglesino said he made no job offer and that it was “pathetic” that Merkt was trying to defame him.

Let’s see. the idea of someone offering someone a job to get out of a race is really politics as usual.  Hard to see any defammation here.
