    ... Chertoff is .. also a former US Attorney for New Jersey and when in that post, his First Assistant US Attorney was none other than Paul Fishman, the current USA for NJ, the guy whose office took Hoboken Mayor Zimmer's testimony against the Christie Mob just yesterday.
    I sure hope Mayor Zimmer got a receipt for her diaries, made copies, etc., just in case they "get misplaced".

    Glad all that happened so publicly. Zimmer was shrewd to do it that way.

      strong armed by a former US Atty for your district who is now the Gov and who set up dozens of Dems for corruption indictments (they were mostly caught by DoJ stings), then taking that very sort of complaint against that very ex-US Atty directly to his immediate successor seems dicey, at best, and probably very stupid.

      And waiting till the political climate was ripe for the revelations was also a good move.  She's had over half a year to mull this over. I'm sure she's covered her bases.
