Barbara Buono was robbed.  She bravely challenged Christie when no one else would.  
But the NJ Governors Election of 2013 stank to high heaven even before the Bridge revelations, including:

Christie's sleazy and racist wasted $9 million early Senate election to avoid having to run on the same day as Cory Booker, avoiding African American turnout.

Craven endorsements from Democrats -- now perhaps explained (though not excused) by the viciousness of Christie's retribution against a Democrat who declined to do so.

Screwing by the national Democrats -- not smart enough to even try to blunt the success of the (until now) strongest Republican 2016 candidate.

A noun, a verb and Sandy: Christie's shameless exploitation of the storm -- even while his administration has been failing in the rebuilding.

The fawning treatment of Christie by the courtier media, sucking up to a bully and petty revenge taker, perhaps even missing evidence of the Bridge scandal before the election.

And now we learn that, like Nixon after Watergate in 1972, Christie was elected in 2013 while covering up a sickening political dirty trick of stunning viciousness.  In the two months between September and November 2013, the vindictive bridge closing was disguised, unknown to voters. letting Christie waltz to re-election.

Christie was elected under false pretenses, essentially stealing the election from Barbara Buono.

Throw the bum out and put Barbara in.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
