  • Zoffinger’s Controversial Comments

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Some must-read comments by George Zoffinger, a New Brunswick banker and former member of Gov. Jim Florio’s Cabinet, in today’s Home News Tribune about Sen. Dick Codey and Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano. Apparently Zoffinger and Codey don’t get along.

    “In my 34 years in politics, I never met a more dishonest person than George Zoffinger,” said Codey.

    Codey said negotiations meant to be private were leaked to the media. Codey said he confronted Zoffinger, who admitted leaking information. “George swore he wouldn’t do it again. Then, he’d do it again,” said Codey.

    “Codey’s an idiot, and you can print that,” said Zoffinger….

    And this gem..

    And Zoffinger does not believe Schiano will remain at Rutgers when 84-year-old Penn State head coach Joe Paterno retires. “Greg Schiano, in my opinion, will go to Penn State in a heartbeat,” said Zoffinger.
