    Christie is still in the news. This time for appointments he made to the Economic Development Authority.
    Seems tax breaks were given to companies that did not meet the criteria to receive millions in those tax breaks.
    All of which means this. We the tax payers, again, foot the bill for companies that cheated the system.
    IMO, this is why our state is still turmoil. Republican control did nothing except keep us in debt.

    Murphy looks to oust Christie appointees to EDA board, amid mounting criticism over misspent billions
    A 2015 lawsuit that recently came to light revealed as well that political pressure was put on the EDA by the Christie administration to approve hundreds of millions in subsidies.
    In its first of a series of public hearings, the task force opened with the testimony of a whistleblower who claimed that the company she had worked for had been awarded a $2.67 million state grant after falsely claiming it was considering a move out of the state and planning to take those jobs to New York and Florida.
    The task force last week also disclosed that it has uncovered evidence of "unregistered lobbying on behalf of special interests,” and referred the matter to law enforcement.
    Critics of the authority a meeting of the EDA last week called for entire board to resign, charging that its members rushed through billions in corporate subsidies to “profitable and politically connected corporations without adequate oversight or accountability.”

    What that saying we heard all so much ?
    Lock her up !
    Loyalty only goes so far.

    ‘Mr. Christie, you are a bully!’ declares Bridget Kelly, as the former aide is again sentenced to prison for her part in Bridgegate scandal
    Taking aim at her former boss, Bridget Anne Kelly angrily lashed out at Gov. Chris Christie Wednesday after she was re-sentenced to 13 months in federal prison for her role in the Bridgegate scandal — asking how he and others in his administration escaped scrutiny.
    Speaking out for the first time since her conviction in the ill-fated scheme of political retribution, Kelly turned her fury on the governor and members of his administration. Kelly has long maintained Christie and others in the governor’s office knew about the scheme of political retribution at the George Washington Bridge and did nothing to stop it.
    Kelly said that during her seven-week trial, the names of many of the governor’s closest associates were repeatedly heard, as was the governor himself.

    “How did all these men all escape justice?” she asked. “Chris Christie was allowed, without rebuttal from anyone, to say out of one side of his mouth that I was a low level staffer. A woman only good enough to plan menus and invite people to events. And then say out of the other side that I was somehow powerful enough to shut down the George Washington Bridge.”

    She said there was only one person powerful enough to approve that, and that was the governor himself.

    Again, the well connected get away with crime.

    Years later and it's still in the news.

    U.S. Supreme Court to hear Bridgegate appeal. Stunning move keeps alive case that dogged Christie
    Bridget Anne Kelly, the one-time aide to former Gov. Chris Christie whose “time for some traffic problems” email became a key focal point of the Bridgegate corruption scandal, will get a final chance to argue she was wrongfully convicted.
    As its term ended, the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear Kelly’s case — just weeks before she is due to report to federal prison — reviving a case more than five years old that many thought was finally over.
    Its decision to review her conviction could raise new questions about the ability of the government to take on major political prosecutions, by a court that has taken aim at a number of other high-profile corruption cases in recent years.
