  •  John Gotti was at one time a popular figure (8+ / 0-)

    in the NYC area.....
    it didn't last.

    Federal indictments and trials removed the curtain and exposed the ugly side his personality and the business.

    Gotti was called the "Teflon Don" at one point,
    Christie was called the "Teflon Governor".

    It appears Christie has conned screwed over a lot of people, now that he's under scrutiny and they no longer need to fear him, they will start telling their stories.

    btw, interesting fun fact:
    Christie grew up with a close family friend who attended family functions; gangster, Tino "The Animal" Fiumara.....
    of course Christie also denied knowing him well, says he met him once or twice, but records show Christie did visit him in prison before Fiumara died.

    Christie reminds me of the bad cop in the movie "The Departed".
    He seems to work on both sides of the law.
