By vetoing bills passed by both legislatures in New York and New Jersey to reform the politicized Port Authority, Govs. Andrew M. Cuomo and Chris Christie have again given honesty, integrity and accountability a backseat to politics .

By disbanding the Moreland Commission, Cuomo already proved his lack of emphasis on ethics in government. Christie, absolved by his own commission of any involvement in "Bridgegate," was a question mark until now. That absolution was questionable at best, and now he has firmly entered the ranks of the ethically challenged.

My problem is how to get rid of these guys and, in fact, most of the politicians inhabiting the legislative houses in both states.
