The State of New Jersey vs Tesla Motors

Elon Musk details his dispute with the State of New Jersey:

On Tuesday, under pressure from the New Jersey auto dealer lobby to protect its monopoly, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, composed of political appointees of the Governor, ended your right to purchase vehicles at a manufacturer store within the state. 

Governor Christie had promised that this would be put to a vote of the elected state legislature, which is the appropriate way to change the law. When it became apparent to the auto dealer lobby that this approach would not succeed, they cut a backroom deal with the Governor to circumvent the legislative process and pass a regulation that is fundamentally contrary to the intent of the law.

The whole thing is a stunning indictment of anti-capitalism and the shitstorm of corruption that surrounds Chris Christie. Go buy a Tesla in New Jersey and make the fat man and his cronies cry.
