When your argument becomes "Everyone in the world is lying except for me", that's a bit of a problem.

Steve Kornacki was as a reporter for PoliticsNJ.com from 2002 to 2006. That site was started by David Wildstein the former Port Authority official embroiled in the politically-motivated lane closures in Ft. Lee, NJ, which lead to the George Washington bridge. But at the time, Kornacki didn't know who he was working for: "It was anonymously owned and operated. He went by the pseudonym 'Wally Edge," Kornacki continued. Link

He has, understandably, been all over this story.

Construction contracts corruption? In my New Jersey?

I'd say the fact that Hoboken only got $200,000 out of a $1.8 Billion relief fund is pretty much proof that the Christie administration retaliated against the mayor. I mean, half of the town was under water. I know other towns got hit worse, but Hoboken got hit pretty damn bad too and clearly deserved WAY more in funding.

If another shoe drops, its sure going to be a FAT shoe!

AMIRITE!   HA HHA HHA HHH H AHAH !!!

"Mayor Zimmer has been effusive in her public praise of the Governor's Office and the assistance we've provided in terms of economic development and Sandy aid," Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak wrote in a statement.  "What or who is driving her only now to say such outlandishly false things is anyone's guess."

I would guess that it's the Sandy relief money you screwed her out of.  But that's just a guess.

New Jersey hasn't seen this many shoes drop since the last time Rex Ryan hosted an orgy.

Benghazi is not like 'Beetlejuice'. You can't repeat it three times and magically save Chris Christie.

"Any nice things I said were in attempt to get more money than 200 grand for my totally farked city out of Christie's pockets."  There, that takes care of that, lol.

Recommend watching the accompanying video. Lots of important recent history and context from a guy who covered the beat for years.

I'd be more inclined not to question the motives of the coverage of the Christie scandals if they weren't receiving SEVENTEEN times more coverage that the much larger, more egregious IRS scandal involving Obama's administration...

The IRS thing happened six months ago. And what, pray tell was scandalous about requesting overtly political organizations of all party affiliations to answer a questionnaire when applying for a tax-exempt status? I'm sure you'll be able to tell me quickly, seeing as how it was more egregious than closing a bridge for political payback either to the mayor of Fort Lee or the leader of the NJ state legislature.

I thought the IRS story died when it was revealed that just as many left wing organizations got investigated as right wings.  And the IRS did not do one thing to anyone in any case.  So I guess I never did get how a non-issue can be an issue.

If this is true, Christie might be a sociopath. Who grandstands and shames congress for not providing funds, positions himself as a champion of the people, and then does this?

Narrative waits for no man. Everyone else is bad. We're always good. Even when divorcing an ailing wife, or getting caught red handed with bribe envelopes in hand. Narrative is King.

Of course, narrative is just telling stories...
