Hoboken mayor reveals new documents

Hoboken mayor reveals new documents
by Ismay

On CNN, she showed a letter sent to Christie dated February 23, she wrote:

"Just as shore towns are not being asked for development in exchange for protecting them from future storms, the solution to Hoboken's flooding challenges cannot be dependent on future development."

Watch it yourself here:

This letter shows she was being pressured for a long time... If she wanted Sandy aid, she needed to help the governor's pet project.

Christie's career is finished. As yoda says "At an end your rule is, and not short enough it was".

Christie's office subpoenaed!!
by FisherOfRolando

Just now on the Rachel Maddow Show.

"The Office Of The Governor" also the office of his re-election campaign.

6:26 PM PT: State Rep Wisniewski said that this includes anything written by the Governor. The people subpoenaed have to turn in their cell phones.

Wow! This Epic StopRush Response will Make Your Day

Wow! This Epic StopRush Response will Make Your Day
by ProgLegs

The "Rush" for the exits at Rush Limbaugh's new home in New York City--Clear Channel's WOR AM--continues, as advertisers who have long run ads on this radio station object to their brands suddenly being hitched to Limbaugh's hate wagon.

On Friday a Mexican-American StopRush volunteer contacted a WOR advertiser called Page Publishing to politely request that they not advertise on the Rush Limbaugh Show.

She specifically objected to Limbaugh's characterization of Mexicans as being lazy by nature.

The response she received will make your day:

I am the president of Page Publishing, and I could not agree with you more. He is a disgusting, misogynistic racist. We have been advertising with WOR for quite a while, but they only recently added this moronís program to their lineup, and we were assured that our ads would not inadvertently run during his show. Thanks for pointing out that it did (I donít have the stomach to listen to his show to verify if our ads do run). I will insist that our ads never run during his bigoted show. It amazes me that his show has any audience at all here in New York City- a progressive and liberal place if ever there was one (the place where I was born and raised, and a place that is amazing in its diversity).

Your email reached me because the staff here universally despises Limbaugh and everything he stands for, and they know of my feelings as well. The ironic things about most of the nonsense that he spews, in particular his references to Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, is that there probably isnít a harder working group of people in the nation right now.

He has the right to say what he wants, and we have the right to refuse to support him with our corporate advertising dollars.

Thanks for the email,

Stephen Matthews
President and CEO
Page Publishing, Inc.

Decent folks who believe in tolerance and equality are no longer powerless against Rush Limbaugh's efforts to spread intolerance on the radio. StopRush is making a major impact by convincing advertisers on this show to withdraw their ads--and with your help we can do even more. Just a few emails, tweets, or Facebook messages a week to Limbaugh's advertisers can go a long way toward making hatred less profitable. It is our collective voice that makes us strong.
