Tesla Calls Gov. Christie 'Mafia' Enforcer Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Mar 17, 2014, 11:07 PM

The electric car manufacturer Tesla is lashing out at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for engaging in "mafia protectionism" to prevent his company from directly selling cars in the Garden State.

According to Fox News, "A growing number of states are banning automakers from selling directly to consumers, in a move seemingly aimed at curbing electric car company Tesla -- whose CEO Elon Musk is aggressively fighting back."

"The rationale given … is that it ensures ‘consumer protection,'" Musk wrote in a statement on Friday. "Unless they are referring to the Mafia version of protection, this is obviously untrue."

As reported by Fox News, "He also took a shot at New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie, claiming the governor promised to let the issue be decided in the General Assembly, and then had the state Motor Vehicle Commission impose the regulation."

Musk plans to fight back against Mafioso thug tactics in Trenton.
