    I like the key word tags that you used – “4th Amendment, 5th Amendment”.

    Not too many writers would be able to do that. In fact, when you go into court these days, those are considered dirty words. Their use is punishable by contempt of court, jail, and probable loss of your case.

    Oh – I forgot to comment on the actual story. Maybe I forgot because I consider this whole thing as a political attack that’s designed to give NJ a legislature similar to the one in California with zero Republicans.

    Let’s put these same prosecutors on an investigation of Obama’s 529 constitutional violations that have caused several $trillion in losses and have destroyed our health care system. Only then might I might look at a political traffic jam as having some significance – something on the level of the seriousness of a traffic ticket.

    I just watched a re-run of the two-hour press conference with CC. He did say his staff will cooperate. I guess since Stepien isn’t a part of his staff anymore is the reason he invoked the 5th, lol

    Well as a further distraction folks, I guess we will be hearing shouts of “Benghazi, IRS, Fast and Furious.” Oh yeah, we did already (see above).

    Christie, Stepien, Wildstein and the rest of the RINO hacks and drones are going down for the count. They are through. The people are fed up with their shenanigans, and there will be a clean sweep of all this stench and corruption when the voters go to the polls, starting with the primary in June.

    but look what we’re left with: the big Sween and his roving band of union hacks.. The thought of remaining in a broken and apparently un- fixable state like this is daunting at best,and terrifying at worst: time to pack up and pack it in, fellow travelers/ wanderers/ seekers of conservative leadership!!
