Jordan Paid Christie’s $30K Hotel Tab

Gov. Chris Christie likes to live large on other people’s dime, The New York Times reports. Christie let King Abdullah of Jordan pay for a family trip to the country, which included a stay at a hotel that cost around $30,000. In 2012, Christie flew to Israel on a luxurious private jet loaned to him by mogul Sheldon Adelson, who was also opposing legislation to legalize online gambling in New Jersey at the time. Christie later signed that bill into law. “I relish these experiences and exposures, especially for my kids,” Christie said last year. “I try to squeeze all the juice out of the orange that I can.”
