    how Christie got reelected so easily when he was holding up the FEMA aid.

    In my only experience observing FEMA (this was over a decade ago, the agency might have changed its aid distribution mechanisms, and  I've never received FEMA aid personally)  the agency doles out aid directly and rapidly, with an eye to filter out bogus claims and another eye on slapping around fraudsters who pass through the filter and defraud the system.

    Maybe the FEMA process varies state by state.

    Perhaps in NJ fraud is much more systematized.  We all hear the jokes, other than that I understand zero about NJ politics. But why aren't NJ voters holding their elected pols accountable for this corruption? Did they not understand that the FEMA aid should have been distributed quickly? On the ground? Why, after the aid had been granted by Congress, didn't Sandy victims expect and claim their aid quickly?

    What were they thinking, just "blame Obama"?
