Just when it seems as if they’re simply can’t be another potential controversy involving the Christie administration, three more potentially damaging stories have surfaced in the wake of the Bridgegate scandal and the allegations of political payback in Hoboken.
Did Belleville, which sustained relatively little damage from Hurricane Sandy, receive storm recovery money to build a senior housing project in exchange for the mayor’s endorsement of the governor’s reelection bid?
Did Gov. Christie appoint an ally to oversee the state Ethics Commission, which might hear the Bridgegate ethics complaints?
Is there any sort of unsavory connection between a real-estate deal in Harrison involving the governor’s brother, Todd, and a $256 million renovation of a PATH station near the property?
Veteran reporter John Mooney talked with Mary Cummings-Jordan of WHYY/Newsworks, a partner of NJ Spotlight, about these new revelations.
