Prosecutor sacked for bringing case against Christie cronies reveals ordeal..
UK Daily Mail ^ | January 15, 2014 | ML Nestel and David Martosko

A prosecutor who was sacked after attempting to indict Chris Christie's political cronies for corruption told MailOnline today about his ordeal at the hands of the New Jersey Governor's 'mafia.' Bennett Barlyn, a prosecutor for 18 years in New Jersey’s Hunterdon County, has spoken out following the revelations over the Bridgegate scandal to reveal his firsthand account of being fired and shamed at the hands of Christie and his political henchmen. He said there were parallels between a criminal case he tried to prosecute – before, he says, it was unlawfully dismissed – and the Bridgegate scandal, where Christie’s staff closed off travel lanes leading to the George Washington Bridge, in order to retaliate against a Democratic mayor who had declined to endorse him for re-election.

NJ is up there with NY, MA, LA and IL for political corruption. This is probably the first of many similar stories that will come out.

It's a little off that they're knocking off Christie at this stage... I thought the left wanted him to be our candidate, then they would knock him down after the primaries. Something must have changed in their strategy for some reason.

I wonder who they're going to choose for us next.

They just need to document the problem. They’ll still support him with crocodile tears. It’s no different than Claire McCaskill making public announcements ‘supporting’ that one guy to stay in the race.

It’s about loading the dice for the toss.

They’ve got this thing down cold.

[’It's the same modus operandi,’ he said Tuesday in an exclusive interview with MailOnline. ‘It's the governor's office again using a state agency in an improper way for political purposes’.]

Why is this guy giving an “exclusive interview” to a UK newspaper? Does the U.S. news media know something about him that indicates he is unreliable or corrupt?

Could be. The MSM/DNC will be able to easily torpedo him if he gets the nomination... based on his name alone he wouldn't stand a chance.

I still think Palin would be the biggest threat to Hillary... a woman against a woman, and Palin's been thoroughly vetted already by the MSM... there's nothing new than can dredge up on her (not that they won't make stuff up).

I don’t think she can officially declare yet... she needs to wait for the right timing in order to qualify for the Federal matching money. I think she can’t officially declare for at least another year and a half, if not longer.

I wish the press would investigate Obama. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Are you kidding me? These is a well exercised tactic of the left. A left wing DA dogs a conservative politician with secret grand juries, John Doe lawsuits, well funded and publicized law suits and Rico type charges.

Just check with Tom Delay or Governor Rick Scott.

Keep in mind that Wisconson currently has a prosecutor going after the Club for Growth and other conservative groups that would be describe as “cronies” of Scott Walker by any good leftist rag. I would love to see Walker bring the hammer down on that scum prosecutor so forgive me if I shed no tears for a democrat hack who played the political persecution game and was hoisted by his own petard.

Hmmm, I’m trying to recall all of the coverage of his predecessor, Jon Corzine (crickets ...) I guess he was as pure as newly fallen snow!
