Posted on 01/13/2014 10:46:45 AM PST by maggief
Documents released Monday indicate that meetings arranged between top commissioners to Gov. Chris Christie and Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop were abruptly canceled without reason last yearproviding evidence of Mr. Fulop's claim that he was cut off after he decided not to endorse the governor.
The documents viewed by The Wall Street Journal through a public records request showed communications between Mr. Fulop and Christie administration staff members arranging the meetings in June and July, until the commissioners all canceled one meeting after another.
The documents don't indicate why the meetings were scrapped, but Mr. Fulop has said that he was punished for declining to endorse the governor. Mr. Christie attended the Democrat's inauguration in Jersey City in July, and Mr. Fulop's advisers had considered endorsing Mr. Christie, a Republican, but ultimately didn't.

Politics are politics. It is game of hardball and not for sissies.
Well, it certainly is nicer than Bill and Hill killing their political enemies....
It’s about time we elected some adults....
OH dear it over for Tony Soprano he is done
Christie is getting the McCain treatment early.
This is more important than a corrupt and politicized IRS, the murder of American diplomatic personnel or the epic failure of the Regime's signature "achievement"?
Cancelled a meeting?? Uh I don’t think that’s so unusual.
Obama announces every week how he wants to work with the republicans, and then refuses to meet with them.
This one is silly.
Sounds illegal to cancel meetings just like that and not re-schedule them.
Why isn’t Christie in hand-cuffs?
Its a good thing Christie didn’t let 4 people get slaughtered he would be done for sure..oh wait, that only happens if your a Republican, if your a Dem and you let people die that’s actually a plus on your resume
Handcuffs??? Off with his head!
Adults don’t want to spend their days around these vermin, so until all of them can be expunged don’t expect adults to volunteer for the sacrifice.
And Christie didn’t know anything about it!
If you do what the guy above you wants, you get facetime that makes you feel important. If you don't, no meeting for you.
What silliness that this is news.
Chinese water torture comes to mind.
I’m sure Crispy knew nothing about that. :-)
Christie cancelled a meeting????
I can’t believe it. Why the heck is the media spending so much time on Holder running guns to Mexican drug lords???
This is HARDLY news. Probably goes on ALL THE TIME. My guess is the Dems do the SAME THING when they are in office.
I noticed that this erupted in the headlines just after Fallujah was lost.
Fallujah = one day story. Lanes closed on local highway = wall to wall coverage.
Sometimes I think this entire thing is a little field test by the Dems to be certain of the level of R support they can expect Christie to have. Why wouldn’t they want to run against Christie since he’s so divisive for our side? Why bother to take him out now?
At the end of the day it reminds me of Vietnam, where the Democrats were determined to give the communists the victory and dishonor the sacrifices of so many.
The Democrats of the state of NJ can appoint a special prosecutor to look into this boondoggle, yet our own federal govmint won’t appoint one on Benghazi?
Heaven forbid that that Fallujah should be the headline rather than a few lanes closing on a highway!
Only if Republicans do it.
Its OK if Obama does it.
