It's been a tumultuous few months for Governor Chris Christie, who's been embroiled in two simultaneous scandals alleging he took part in the closure of Fort Lee lanes to the George Washington Bridge, and for misappropriating funds for Hurricane Sandy victims.

While he's held a handful of town hall events throughout the state since the inauguration for his second term as Governor in January, Christie has only once addressed the bridge lane closure issue with the media during a marathon press conference.

Christie invited Diane Sawyer and ABC News into his Mendham Township home to discuss the scandal and the impact, if any, on a potential run for the White House in 2016.

The interview came the same day Christie's own lawyers vindicated him of any wrongdoing in the scandal. The law firm's report added that Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer, who accused the Christie administration of withholding funds from the Sandy-stricken Hudson County city, were "demonstrably false."

Christie is a wretched role model for our youth...nothing more. But fear not, justice will be served and he will crawl back under his rock.

I didn't bother watching the interview because I can't bare to look at the fat "F" and hear one lie after another as well as watch his bad acting. Ms. Kelly has been thrown under the bus so that Christie can continue on with his Presidential aspirations. Let's not fool ourselves she is going to get something in return. We need to follow the money, she or someone close to her will be coming into money. Will she do jail time? If so is there a promise of a pardon. Or will she come into a lucrative job? If anyone believes control freak Christie did not give his approval for this act you are watching too much mainstream media. BTW at this point in time almost all politicians are working for themselves and the their monied peers. We are up the creek without a paddle unless we wake up and band together.
