By the way, Fort Lee voted for Christie (traffic jam punished his own voters)
Conservative Intel ^ | 1-10-14 | David Freddoso

Posted on 01/11/2014 11:55:20 AM PST by The Old Hoosier

[Christie appointee David Wildstein] had told someone (in writing) not to worry about the children that the resulting traffic jams were keeping away from school, “They are the children of Buono voters.”

Well, turns out he was probably wrong....

Christie could make it up to the voters of Ft Lee by
giving them a waiver on something or other. Seems to
work OK for a certain other politician.

Interesting that the voters were forgotten in this little battle. Who do these politicians think they are punishing here?

You’d think at some point people (Americans?) would realise they’ve been had and start an uprising or something.

This is shocking, straight out of a banana republic’s political establishment.

This is what all of our politicians have become. It’s all about them and their power over us. Top to bottom, Obama to the dawg catcher.

The media keeps referring to Christie as a rising star in the Republican Party. They need to be corrected. He is a rising star in the R I N O Party.

A major shift in thinking needed along with some not so gentle persuasion.

I think they really expected the “right” to rally around Christie or something.

Not going to happen, not even he has enough gravity

“No tolls for a year?”

Sure, but being a West Coaster I don’t even know if
that bridge is of the toll variety.

I don’t think he can rise any more, although he is a balloon full of hot air

Better believe that if there’s a way to extract money from commuters the politicians will find a way to get it. It’s free heading west but $13 to NYC - give or take:http://www.panynj.gov/bridges-tunnels/tolls.html

Christie already has had far more coverage of this (local scandal) than Obama or Holder have had on DOJ eavesdropping or IRS persecution of tea party groups (national dictatorship).

Something definitely wrong with this picture.

If only the press would go after Ubama’s corruption with the same zeal.

So what. Obama punished everyone with his Shutdown Tantrum.

Christie’s raw abuse of power, Mafia-style, has come back to bite him in his ample butt.

Christie is a rising star only in his own mind, or in an alternate universe.

Aren’t state bridge and road tolls set by the state legislatures, and not by the governor? He wouldn’t have any authority to give out freebies, would he? Besides, IIRC, the NJ legislature is all demonRATs, and they want Krispy Kreme to suffer on this gaffe.

Dunno - it was sort of a tongue in cheek statement.

Just to educate myself, I was Googling “state bridge & road tolls” and one resource said that in the 20th century, highway depts took over setting of all road/bridge-related tolls. I always thought it was the greedy/corrupt legislatures who jacked-up tolls and taxes. Now I’m even more confused than I was... heh.

Not that it was a serious suggestion anyway but I would guess
that Christie might not have the authority to determine toll
fares going into NYC in the first place.

Chris Christie carried Fort Lee, 3,735 votes to 2,941 for Democrat Barbara Buono.

If this is true then it should be in breaking news as evidence of a whole lot of stupidity in New Jersey, the Christie camp, and the MSM.

IOW, it’s another manufactured scandal, a Demwit smear.

Thanks The Old Hoosier.

On June 12, 1955, Hackett married Sherry Cohen. They lived in Leonia, NJ in the late 1950s. In August 1958, they bought the house previously owned by deceased crime boss Albert Anastasia in Fort Lee, NJ. After renovations they moved in and lived there through most of the 1960s.
