I'm listening to Christie's press conference, and on the surface, it looks like he is saying all the right things. But as Chris Hayes brought up on his show last night, what else has Christie's staff been up to besides lane closures to Fort Lee? Let's face facts. Christie is admitting that his staff has engaged in "unacceptable" behavior. Others, like the New York Daily News, call Christie's staff a bunch of thugs. No one seems to be asking Christie what else did his staff supposedly lie to him about.
It has been my experience that thugs just don't engage in unacceptable behavior once. Thugs have to throw their weight around and constantly remind others that they are all little people to be intimated. Christie's thugs have been around for years, so it is logical to assume that they may have been up to other bad behavior during that time.
Why is no one else asking Christie what else his lying sack of shit staff was up to? Stupid decisions like punishing the people of Fort Lee to get at their mayor doesn't just happen in a vacuum. Stupid decisions sometimes happen after a long string of successfully circumventing established rules of behavior. In other words, being a thug is empowering, and power goes to your head.
So what else Gov. Christie has your supposedly out of control staff been up to?
