Our Koch Exclusive Ignites Political Firestorms in Chris Christie's New Jersey
Edited on Thu Sep-08-11 07:10 PM by BradBlog


Part 2 of Our Koch Exclusive Ignites Political Firestorms in Chris Christie's New Jersey

Well, it looks like Part 2 of my Secret Koch Tapes exclusive at Mother Jones yesterday has ignited a political firestorm. Several of them, actually, particularly in the state of New Jersey. Oops.

One of the firestorms has even led the Democratic Speaker of the NJ Assembly to call Gov. Chris Christie "disgraceful", charge that his comments about her were "outright lies", that he is "not fit to lead the state," and that she is "beginning to wonder if Gov. Christie is mentally deranged." All statements given to local media late today in response to our release of the tapes. Though some local Dems are still wondering if it may be the Speaker, rather than Christie, who is hiding the truth

1. Guess this is a warning
Be careful what you say behind closed doors. Someone there will have an iPhone and record all of the festivities.

Irregardless, if you are so proud of what you are doing, why all the secrecy?

3. Democrats going along with Christie to cut union bargaining rights was a disgrace.
So now we start to learn how it all came about. Thanks Bradblog.

11. Unfortunately it will all blow over
The power brokers that control the North New Jersey Democrats (Newark's North Ward) will make it go away.
Steve Adubato Sr. makes sure everything goes his way. I must say that he is very good at what he does.
This is a fellow you don't want to cross. He's teflon too.
