  •  Christie's press conference (8+ / 0-)

    There were lots of things that were not true in Christie's press conference.

    1. He said he hadn't met with Wildstein for a long time, but had met with him while the lanes were closed.

    He also knew Wildstein from his political blog, which Christie used to leak lots of info.  Christie didn't know when he was leaking that it was Wildstein, but he likely knew after the blog was sold and Wildstein went public, that it was him.

    2. He said he didn't know Sokolich, when Christie had had Sokolich over for dinner at the governor's mansion.

    Bloomberg

    3. He said he had questioned everyone and no one else in his admin knew anything.  But, it turns out that several were: Charlie, two people working under Kelly, and Michael Drewniak who was involved in the coverup. (This may not have been a lie, if he claims that people  under him were lying to him.)

    Christie can also project blame.  We saw that with the most recent town hall where he blamed the Fed gov for lack of funds.  That maybe true, but:

    1. Christie spent $25 MILLION of Sandy funds on television ads  that featured his family.

    Think Progress

    2. Some of that money, intended for affordable housing, is going to luxury complexes.  

    New Brunswick

    3. Expensive outside contractors have been brought in.

    Here's a general article on this:
