  •  A vigorous probe of his former office too, I hope (13+ / 0-)

    What we have, in the saga of the bridge traffic plot, is a peek into the Christie operation.  It shows a deeply corrupt system where cronies reward and punish public officials with public resources for partisan purposes.  There is enough additional information about crony abuses in the private sector to show that this is not a unique event, or a new tactic.  It would behove the US Attorney, therefore, to investigate how far back in Christie's career this pattern goes.  The Bush Administration US Attorneys Scandal was about the use of the power of those offices for corrupt partisan purposes.  Christie was a big part of that.  I am not holding my breath waiting for the Holder team to clean out the dirty linen from the DOJ, but it's right there in plain sight.
