    There are SEVERAL giant paisley blobs.  Withholding state aid/ granting state aid based on whether or not you give your endorsement is a GIANT paisley blob.  So too is the shutting down of the bridge.  So too is wasting federal aid to prop up your re-election.  The common thread in all this was his re-election.   Several of these are crimes of various sorts.  Impeding interstate commerce, using state funds for influence peddling, misusing federal money (which BTW the GOP DID NOT want to give him).  It's a giant ugly pattern of corruption, bribery, bullying all in the pursuit of more power.

      Christie was going to win re-election easily without appearing in that ad. Given the need still remaining in NJ, it was a pathetic 'promo' waste of money.

      Ironically, the GOP predicted the money would be wasted when they voted 'no' to Sandy aid.

      But other GOP Governors got away with stealing taxpayer money and using it for whatever they needed, First, Walker stole Fed Settlement money from the victims of unscrupulous lenders-literally the victim's money. Then, Haley requested huge money to explore exchanges. She was caught red-handed in an e-mail saying she had no intention of doing anything on the ACA.  

      To add fuel to Christie's Mayoral retribution, the Mayor of Hoboken, Dawn Zimmer, got less that 1% of the funds she asked for because she wouldn't endorse 'the Christie.' Hoboken had largely been underwater after Sandy. Rachel Maddow brought that to light last nite.
