Anyone know anything about what Barack Obama did in college? Of course not, the media isn’t interested. Heck, we don’t even know his grades. But the supersleuths here have blown the lid off Chris Christie’s nefarious activities while at the University of Delaware over 30 years ago.
Man, this is a game-changer.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is no stranger to accusations of political bullying and backroom dealing like those at the heart of the bridge scandal.
TPM has found one of the first times the brash political brawler faced such claims was in the mid-1980s when he was an undergrad at the University of Delaware.
There, student newspaper archives show, Christie was accused of establishing a college political machine that rewarded his friends and drove his classmates out of student government. One fellow student even wrote to the paper to decry Christie’s “cronyism” and question the legitimacy of the future governor’s reign.
The accusations have have relevance anew now that the potential 2016 presidential contender is facing the biggest turmoil of his career with the uproar over the George Washington Bridge. Democrats in New Jersey have accused members of Christie’s administration of using their power to close lanes on the bridge, causing a traffic jam in the town of Fort Lee, N.J. as revenge against the mayor there. Christie’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
They were too busy laughing to comment. These morons even unearthed a photo of a fairly svelte-looking Christie. Apparently this is what a 2-year-old bully looks like or something.
