    You completely are avoiding giving a reason for her going to her Twitter account to lavish praise on the guy.
    Well, the reason may be the fear of retribution and as implausible as that may have seemed, it's probably why a lot of people are only coming out now to make statements about Christie's strong arm tactics.
    The Mayor may have suspected the MO Christie the bullying controlling Governor and his henchmen/women used against anyone who bucked their way and needed to be taught a lesson (hell, we ALL suspected).  Her life would have been hell, her career ruined and no one would have believed her, the charges would have been scoffed at and belittled by the Christie machine, and she would have been smeared as a liar with zero recourse.  
    The only thing she could do was to play for time and speak to the ogre's vanity (ie. heaping lavish praise on the guy), in the hopes he'd move on to some other shiny thing he wanted.
    It was only a matter of time before the guy's overblown ego took over and tripped him up.

    I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!
