Gov. Chris Christie is the fourth highest paid governor in the nation, according to a report today by Stateline.

Christie, who is compensated $175,000 a year as the chief executive, is topped only by the governors of New York, Illinois and Michigan. In addition to a salary, the New Jersey governor receives $75,000 stipend, use of the gubernatorial residence in Princeton, Drumthwacket, and use of a summer home at Island Beach.

Too bad there is no direct link between being the highet paid and doing the best job!
