        In a better world, all this corruption in Cristie's administration would result in its wholesale exposure and removal.  The ugly reality though, is that it isn't just one politician or one party that is corrupt and excising it is an inherently political act.  The key to Christie's success has been his bi-partisan appeal, which in practice meant strong arming corrupt Democrats to team with corrupt Republicans to carry out deeply corrupt acts on behalf of some of the richest people in the country.  The beauty of that approach, from the point of view of the insiders, is that if everyone is a little dirty, everyone will play along.  The surest disqualifier for participation in that system is honesty - it's a character flaw in that environment.  

        Looking ahead then, solely on the basis of partisan affiliation and with my rudimentary understanding of the process, Democrats in the NJ Senate would need at least one Republican to convict Christie in an impeachment.  In practice though, there is almost surely enough bi-partisan unwillingness to turn over all the rocks to let Christie successfully ride this out unless the other corrupt bastards have a place to hide their bad deeds while they throw Christie's ugly ass under the bus.  Otherwise, if we are relying on honest politicians, were are they?
