Notes: A photograph of New Jersey Gov. Christie Todd Whitman was released this month showing her smiling while frisking a black man. The photo was taken during 1996 during a night she rode patrol with state police. The man had already been patted down by the police who then asked Whitman if she'd like to do it. This was a mega-stupid move by Whitman. The timing of the release of the photo may have been related to her being considered as a vice-presidential prospect by George W. Bush. While the picture created an outcry, just think how big it would have been if it had been a male governor smiling while patting down a female suspect. 07.14.00
