Washington (CNN) -- Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds.
CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family.
The news couldn't come at a worse time for the scandal-plagued Republican, who is facing two probes into whether his staff tied up traffic near the country's busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his successful re-election bid.

Instead of the image of the bull in the china shop, I think of the old nursury rhyme, Humpty Dumpty. In this case, Humpty Dumpty is Christie when he takes he GOP off the wall and breaks in pieces after his contentious climb to the top. That will be a tragic outcome at a time when we need unity behind a statesman like a Ronald Reagan in the Presidency.
“scandal-plagued Republican”. LOL!
No bias there, nope....
McCain, Romney, and now Christie - all ignorant of Aesop’s Fables.
The Scorpion and the Frog
A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The
frog asks, “How do I know you won’t sting me?” The scorpion
says, “Because if I do, I will die too.”
The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
but has just enough time to gasp “Why?”
Replies the scorpion: “Its my nature...”
Hey Chrisytie, where is your buddy boy Barry at now?
Taking GOPe off the wall.
His hug of Barry will probably go down as one, if not the biggest political gaff in in my lifetime.
Seems that the dogs have been loosed.
this is different from the bridge closing how? both going after a political opponent.
If you’d like to tweet the author as to the definition of “scandal-plagued”.
This gun grabbing turd can’t sink fast enough for me.
You get it. The GOPe had a great fall. Thank God it was not after the nomination!
The media/RAT strategy is to destroy any potentially electable Repubs before they even get to the primaries.
Exactly. This is the lesson. In a significant way Christie contributed to the reelection of ‘the one’, and his attempt to appeal to false moderates has gained him nothing, while hurting the rest of us significantly. What was the point? The left will take what you give them, use it, and then go after you anyway.
I guess the other question that comes up is, ‘did the left know about Christie's vulnerabilities prior to the 2012 election, and did this play a role in convincing him to play nice with Obama?’. Who knows.
What the hell is going on in Joisey??
The sharks are circling...
The same press that hohums about Obama staff foibles is attacking Christie with a vengeance.
I’m not a Christie fan, but I think the guy is being piled on.
It doesnt make sense to me. If I was Hillary I would have waited to hit him with scandals.Let the GOP get behind him and then bring him down.
Maybe Jeb is behind this with the help of Hillary
Yep. Or at least come up with some faux scandals to try to equate with madame Hillary and Benghazi.
It’s about breaking republican momentum for elections later this year.
