Feds investigate Christie's use of Sandy relief funds ???

Washington (CNN)-- Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie faced questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds.

CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used some of that money to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family.

The news couldn't come at a worse time for the embattled Republican, who is facing two probes in New Jersey of whether his staff orchestrated traffic gridlock near the country's busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his re-election.

N.J. Democratic legislator:'I do believe laws have been broken'

His performance during and after the October 2012 storm just before the presidential election has been widely praised and is a fundamental illustration of his straight-shooting political brand.

In the new investigation, federal auditors will examine New Jersey's use of $25 million in Sandy relief funds for a marketing campaign to promote tourism at the Jersey Shore, New Jersey Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone told CNN

In an August letter, Pallone asked the Department of Housing and Urban Development inspector general to look into how Christie chose to spend the marketing money approved by the department.

The inspector general's office confirmed the investigation

Why did you lie in your reply?

From your source:
"Hillary Clinton has been named Most Admired Woman ... each of the last 12 years."

When you stated it was "16 straight years" were you modeling Liar of the Year Barack Hussein 'if you like your plan, you can keep your plan' Obama?

So much for your honesty. According to Gallup polling his tanked long ago.

You're right. I was wrong. 12 years. Not 16. Hillary Clinton has been the most admired woman in the planet for 12 straight years. I had just read this article:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/12/30/us-...

And I read that Obama's reign was in danger because his had fallen to 16 percent. Hard to call it a lie meant to deceive. There isn't much difference. Hillary has been the most admired woman in the world FOR A LONG TIME.

Someday you'll realize that these jokes simply don't work. They certainly aren't offensive in the least. I like them. I just wish they were new and funny rather than regurgitated poorly from a 1980s joke book someone read to you.

You can keep your plan. I realize the ignorant FoxBot in you has to keep gabbing the same talking points once you've heard them once, but the law was adjusted to ensure you can keep your plan even if it doesn't meet the minimum requirements (scam plans).

Even higher health insurance rates loom ahead.

President Obama, Nancy 'we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it' Pelosi and the Democrats are destroying the best health care system in the world to cover a few million who were beyond the reach of regular health insurance.

Obamacare. The nightmare is just beginning for everyone else.

Insurers raise cost concerns after ObamaCare demographic data released

Insurers have raised concerns that too few young people are signing up for heath insurance through the ObamaCare exchanges after newly released statistics showed that less than a quarter of people who have enrolled are between the ages of 18 and 34.

According to the numbers released Monday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, only 24 percent – or 489,460 – of the 2.2 million people who signed up for ACA were in the coveted 18-to-34 age range. That means the government has hit only 18 percent of its stated goal of registering 2.7 million adults in the 18-to-34 age range.

Experts have predicted that the program will need roughly 40 percent of enrollees to be in that prime demographic in order to be fiscally solvent.

Despite the administration's efforts to depict the attack as a protest to a Youtube video, Hillary 'what difference does it make' Clinton's and Obama's immediate and unapologetic lies are seeping out.

The Benghazi Transcripts: Top Defense officials briefed Obama on ‘attack,’ not video or protest

Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation's top civilian and uniformed defense officials -- headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama -- were informed that the event was a "terrorist attack," declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president's Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.
...
According to declassified testimony obtained by Fox News, Ham -- who was working out of his Pentagon office on the afternoon of Sept. 11 -- said he learned about the assault on the consulate compound within 15 minutes of its commencement, at 9:42 p.m. Libya time, through a call he received from the AFRICOM Command Center.

"My first call was to General Dempsey, General Dempsey's office, to say,'Hey, I am headed down the hall. I need to see him right away,'" Ham told lawmakers on the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation on June 26 of last year. "I told him what I knew. We immediately walked upstairs to meet with Secretary Panetta."

New Jersey Assembly announces special Bridgegate investigation committee as Christie's problems pile up
The committee, under the leadership of Assemblyman John Wisniewski, has been given special counsel and subpoena power it can use to find the motive behind the lane closures on George Washington Bridge last September. Gov. Christie is also facing a federal investigation into his use of Hurricane Sandy relief funds — and both scandals are ballooning as he has to deliver his state address on Tuesday.

The investigation into Gov. Chris Christie and his administration’s Bridgegate scandal has been supersized.

The New Jersey Assembly announced a new special committee Monday that will use its subpoena power and a special counsel to unravel the chain of command behind the closure of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge last September that caught commuters in horrendous gridlock over four days.

“It is clearly an abuse of power,” Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald said.“The question is, who abused their power and how high did it go?”

Obamacare Dragging Down Sen. Hagan's Popularity in NC: Poll

Obamacare appears to be sinking Democratic North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan’s approval ratings and her standing against Republican rivals for her job, a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday showed.
...

"Unpopularity of the Affordable Care Act seems to be driving much of her trouble," Jensen told the newspaper. " Only 38 percent of voters in the state overall support it to 48 percent who are opposed, and independents are more against it than the overall electorate at 31/57."

Jensen called independents Hagan’s "main issue," saying with that group, her approval rating is a dismal 30 percent while 56 percent disapprove, and that she trails all of her opponents "by double digits."

The poll numbers on Obamacare’s success show 61 percent of voters think its implementation has been a failure, while just 32 percent think it’s a success, Jensen noted.
