A week ago, Gov. Jon Corzine was riding high, beaming onstage as President Obama heartily endorsed his re-election.

Yesterday, a grim-faced Corzine stepped to another podium to address a very different topic: political corruption — a hammer his Republican opponent, Chris Christie, has been using for months.

The allegations leveled against a host of public officials roiled the landscape of an already contentious governor’s race between Corzine and Christie, the former U.S. attorney who built his reputation on sending politicians to jail.
