For Chris Christie, it was Super Brawl weekend… New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie should have spent the weekend hosting the Super Bowl. Instead, he spent it battling a new allegation. Former Port Authority official David Wildstein claimed Christie knew about that political payback bridge lane closing that he denied any knowledge of. That would be very bad, because the first rule of political scandals is that a cover-up is usually worse than the original infraction. Christie’s people insist he told the truth, and slammed this new charge as a smear by the New York Times. Indeed, the Times story quoted Wildstein as saying he “had evidence” that Christie knew. After igniting a media firestorm, the story was quietly altered to the more vague phrase, “evidence exists.” Not that his accuser actually has it. Well, if he does have any evidence, he’d better show it fast. If this is an unfounded hit piece, I doubt anyone in New Jersey would hold it against Gov. Christie if he reacted less than kindly to it.
