So the new scandal should be why Christie gave an incompetent, inexperienced guy a 6 figure job at the Port Authority.

"Long time New Jersey political reporter(Brian Murphy), who’s working with Steve Kornacki and used to work for Wildstein, at TPM:"

I am trying to summon the requisite mood to seriously ponder the implications of the email that Governor Christie apparently sent to supporters/donors/ Politico/Beltway Republicans (as if there’s any… never mind). But I can’t. I just can’t.

It is hard for me to believe that the governor of an American state could author such a piece of risible juvenilia, except it is even harder for me to believe a paid communications professional could have been behind this. The “argument” Christie (or possibly one very very close longtime advisor) is making here is that David Wildstein is a bad guy

2. The bridge over troubled waters.

The bottom line is that he is in serious trouble, politically and legally.

On the legal front, the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey is probing allegations by the mayor of Hoboken that a member of Christie’s cabinet and the lieutenant governor linked federal Hurricane Sandy relief funds to the the mayor’s support for a redevelopment project in Hoboken that would exclusively benefit one of Christie’s closest allies – whom he appointed to chair the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
This morning on his MSNBC show Steve Kornacki discussed reporting he and I (and producer Jack Bohrer) did showing that those federal Hurricane Sandy funds have not been monitored by the Christie Administration as required by a law that Christie himself signed last March. Furthermore, relief funds have been extremely hard to account for because Christie vetoed a bill that would have created a single website to track Sandy funding and contract information. Based on the reactions of two congressmen who watched the report with me, officials in Washington will be loath to trust Christie with the next round of federal funds and we should not be surprised if an investigation is on the horizon.

Hurricane Sandy's devastating wrath, will come back to bite Christies ass. Wow another Repuke watching it's cities die. He put on one hell of a show to getting funding for the cities devastated by Sandy. Then what does he do? He let's the people suffer and plays a political game that will benefit himself and his very rich benefactors!

The man disgusts me.

Thanks Cha, great thread!

4. Excellent informative article from Brian Murphy, she..

Who happens to be "working with Steve Kornacki" on this. Thank Goodness we have all these intrepid reporters digging for the bottom of all these corruption allegations aimed at the Christie Admin; because Christie had too many NJ reporters eating out of his hand so to speak.

More from the link..

"And here we get to the heart of the matter. David Wildstein was put in the Port Authority by Chris Christie, in a job Christie invented, to be the governor’s eyes and ears – his enforcer. Wildstein was put at the Port so Christie could more effectively use the Port as an extension of his political operation (as Steve and I are documenting, more and more, with each passing week).

So spare us the shock that Wildstein is “a political animal.” Christie knew who Wildstein was before he appointed him to this job. There is no sense in distancing yourself from one of your own appointees who was given a job specifically because his skills matched what you were looking to accomplish with that appointment."


Thanks, sheshe.. just when we thought Christie had reached the bottom of the drecks of political corruption in New Jersey.. it comes out that he's not only stiffing Mayor Dawn Zimmer out of Hoboken Sandy Money because she wouldn't forge ahead with the Rockefeller project but building slush funds to further enhance his 2016 prospects.

He dumped all over New Jersey and treated it like a cesspool to advance himself to the White House. And, he's president of the Republicon Gov Ass. Unbloody real how emblematic that is of today's republicon governors.

7. I couldn't believe Christie dredged up high school crap. WOW. If

Wildstein was such a sneak & such a loser, why create that big paying job for him? Christie is burnt toast. He's turning into the Sarah Palin of the East with all the cheap shots he's spewing.

12. Exactly, catbyte!

"why create that big paying job for him?"

My theory? Christie's been lying so long and getting away with it that it's way too soon for him to ask himself.. " am I goin' on about?"

the 2 hour presser.

20. Do ya think that

Christie is Protesting Too Much?

"Because as a “a 16-year-old kid” he filed a lawsuit over a school board election and was “publicly accused by his high school social studies teacher of deceptive behavior.” Because he was, according to Christie, a “tumultuous” person (not the correct usage of that word, Governor, but whatever). Because he was “a political animal” who had “a controversial tenure” as the mayor of Livingston. Because he “made moves that were not productive.
