Christie’s Bridgegate Scandal Gives New Jersey A Black Eye On National Stage
(Trenton) – Today, Governor Chris Christie delivers his State of the State address in the midst of a scandal that continues to rock his administration.
Christie is expected to sidestep the remaining questions about his involvement in the political payback scheme that shut down lanes on the George Washington Bridge, threatening public safety. However, Christie's administration abused its power and public resources, and he cannot spin and distort his way out of the controversy.
Christie’s bridgegate scandal reflects the governor’s longstanding pattern of bullying behavior and the culture of petty politics he has instilled in his administration.
Christie’s scandal has thrust New Jersey into the national spotlight, bringing days of negative attention to the Garden State. So, as Christie gives his version of the state of New Jersey, we know the real state of the state: Embarrassed.
