From New Jersey blog - PolitikerNJ

The U.S. Attorney’s office today subpoenaed the Gov. Chris Christie re-election campaign and the New Jersey Republican State Committee, PolitickerNJ has learned.

“Patton Boggs has been retained to represent the Christie for Governor re-election campaign and the New Jersey Republican State Committee in connection with investigations being conducted by the US Attorney’s Office and the legislative committee," said Patton Boggs attorney, Mark Sheridan.

"We can confirm that the Christie  for Governor re-election campaign and the New Jersey Republican State Committee received subpoenas for documents from the U.S. Attorney’s office, in addition to the subpoena the campaign previously received from the state legislative committee," he siad. "All three subpoenas focus on the closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge. The campaign and the state party intend to cooperate with the U.S. Attorney’s office and the state legislative committee and will respond to the subpoenas accordingly.”

Every fall from power should have its own musical score. Don't you think?



Feel free to add your favorite musical accompaniment as well.

The floor is yours.

Update :

Former assistant U.S. Attorney Reid Schar, now a partner at Jenner & Block LLP, was tapped to become special council to the state legislative committee looking into the episode.

Schar led the investigation team that brought down former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who was convicted of corruption and sentenced to 14 years in prison. He also helped secure a conviction against Blagojevich fund raiser Tony Rezko.

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.
