With Governor Chris Christie’s schedule this week…Super Bowl events, appearances on sports talk radio, and Howard Stern’s Birthday Bash, one might think that he is letting the media frenzy over Bridgegate just roll off his back. He’s having a good time and basking in the limelight.
But Christie’s appearance at the Friar’s Club to roast Nassau County Hall of Fame quarterback Boomer Esiason reveals that Bridgegate has taken a toll on Christie’s fun.
You may have read that the lawyer handling the Bridgegate inquiries for Christie’s office is earning $650 per hour. Being a good Republican, Christie apparently cut the budget elsewhere to come up with those funds. His comedy writer must have gotten the axe.
