Prove it...right now it's just looking like a VERY biased witch hunt.
No in the big picture and no lol.

Granted, this mayor/lt. governor theing can only be a side-show while it's "she said/she said". It may not go much further, but there *could* be some "there" there. Remember what a lt. governor of a state does. He/she is doing much of nuts-and-bolts administrating policies on a daily basis. This can't be dismissed without a look-see.

That look-see would include communications among staff in the administration. Is it or is it not part of a political vendetta with consequences played out on N.J. residents, non-resident workforce of N.J. companies, taxpayers, and voters.

For instance -- the fired Deputy Chief of Staff is the source of "time for traffic problems in Ft. Lee".

[excerpt follows that includes that *4* staff members are gone ]

TRENTON — Assemblyman John Wisniewski is trying to get to the bottom of why some of Gov. Chris Christie’s top staff switched conversations to private email accounts in the ongoing Bridgegate scandal.

“That’s a very disturbing development because you see some of these communications start with normal governmental email channels and switch to private email channels,” the Middlesex County representative said Monday at the Statehouse.“As the story was originally put forward that this was simply a traffic study ... you wouldn’t switch to your personal email accounts unless you thought there was a reason.”

*********
Some of Christie’s closest allies who were fired or resigned — Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Kelly, Port Authority appointee David Wildstein, campaign manager Bill Stephien and Port Authority Deputy Executive Director Bill Baroni — participated in this type of questionable activity while discussing the Fort Lee lane closures.
*********

Chris Christie’s spokesman Michael Drewniak also forwarded emails from his official state account to his personal Gmail address, and then in some instances began foul chatter with the next recipient. As of Monday, Drewniak remains on Christie’s staff.

It smells like dead skunks in the middle of the road, and it's stinking to high heaven. Just don't know if it's as high as Christie.

This is better than any soap opera, NCIS, and the 'good wife',
(all) rolled into one.
I just watched the following video:
nation.foxnews.com/2014/01/21/neil-cavutos-ex...
which makes it easy to see how Ken Langone (co-founder of Home Depot) and Chris are friends and also why Ken
chose Tony Stewart to sponsor in NASCAR. Talk about 3 peas in a pod - put'm in a gunnysack, shake'm up, and none of them fall out! Their dispositions, attitudes, and personality's are identical.

I hope you slept on this one. The election was in Nov, right? This emails news was broke in early January.

Nixon was re-elected in 1972. He was gone in '74 before being impeached.

Criminal (abuse of power) actions by aides. It came to pass that a cover-up operation was activated with Nixon involved Cover-up is as bad or worse than crimes.

Well, the difference between Nixon and Christie is that the latter can explain the missing 18 minutes of tape - he was hungry.

And the mayor of Hoboken better watch out. She looks no bigger than an appetizer.

"Betcha he knows how to play dirty"

Well, isn't that the point of this discussion... already done by proxy at state government level?

Politics makes strange bedfellows.
Prov. People who would normally dislike and avoid one another will work together if they think it is politically useful to do so.

I have no idea out Gov. Christie's problems will eventually play out. But it has been entertaining to watch.

It's almost like a reality TV show IRL.

That's part of the entertainment here.

The designated scapegoats might be singing like a canary.

There are legal defense costs in play as well as criminal immunity.

It's the cover up and the pointing of fingers that's blowing this up into a major scandal for a trivial, business as usual, political wheeling and dealing scene.

Everyone is talking about the "impact on NJ" over this. Has everybody forgotten about what it did and how much it coat NY? You don't mess with a New Yorkers money. If Christie runs for pres, they'll bury him.
