 I have no idea what the protocols are for submitting a Diary, so I'm sure I'm violating 37 of them (and I'm sure you'll all tell me all about it), but I thought this should be posted and brought attention to right away:


 Matt Katz of NJPR and WNYC continues to do yeoman-like work pursuing the Grand Scandal that is Chris Christie's life.  

  (Has anyone else noticed that ALL of the actual reporting on Christie-Gate has come from maybe a dozen people in the NY/NJ media?  Outside of this handful of actual reporters, no one else in all the world does anything but occasionally re-report what those few have uncovered, or give us a link to a vid of Big Boy dancing with Jimmy Fallon.
  It's quite incredible.)

  Matt took the trouble to actually pore through the reams of phone records the Legislative Committee recently released, and found that the 'General' spent a LOT of time on the phone with Wildstein, Baroni, O'Dowd, Egea, etc. (both with Christie's henchman at the PA and with Christie's inner circle down in Trenton),... and that he especially seems to have been calling those people with alarming frequency just EXACTLY at the times of particular crisis in the engineering of Fort Lee's traffic disaster.
  (For instance, he called Bill Baroni just minutes after Baroni sent him a message about the WSJ's 'inquiring about the lane closures.')

  I'm sure he just wanted to ask Baroni for a recipe, or something.

  To those who've been whining incessantly for six months that,

  Nothing's gonna happen to them.  Samson and Christie will just clam up, and they'll get away with everything.
  They always get away with everything.

  this demonstrates how you've completely missed the point, once again.

  It doesn't matter if Samson tells the truth about those phone calls:
  Wildstein will tell (and so will many others, most likely), and Samson's ass will be fried
(as if it wasn't already fried by his implication in the Rockefeller Deal in Hoboken, and about sixty-five other felonies).

  We all know that Samson obviously orchestrated the Bridge affair (or at least was heavily involved), and this is one more indication that it's going to be easy to prove it.

  You all know what this means, right?   Do I have to spell it out?

  The 'General,' with forty-six felony counts hanging over his head, will prove to be just about as 'loyal' to his beloved 'protege' and 'patron' (that'd be the governor) as
Sammy 'the Bull' Gravano was to his.

  Anybody remember how that one worked out?

  This might be a good time for anybody in close proximity to the governor to take a few steps back:  it's gonna be a hell of an impact when this Big Pig hits the ground.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
