Two former allies of Governor Christie were “loyal lieutenants” who used their government powers to punish political targets.

An in-depth look at the scandal over the lane closures at the George Washington Bridge and related aftershocks. Click here to launch.

In a summation lasting about four hours, Assistant U.S. Attorney Lee Cortes said that Kelly, the governor’s former deputy chief of staff, and Baroni, the governor’s former top executive appointee at the Port Authority, “shared an intense commitment to the political success of Governor Chris Christie.”

“They saw themselves as his loyal lieutenants who were free to use their government jobs to launch political attacks and who never attempted to separate politics from their jobs in public service,” Cortes said.

Kelly’s attorney, Michael Critchley, is scheduled to make his closing arguments on Monday. Jurors are expected to begin their deliberations Tuesday.

Baroni and Kelly are accused of conspiring to reduce access to the bridge in Fort Lee to punish the borough’s mayor for not endorsing Christie’s reelection. The pair, both 44, are charged with conspiracy, fraud and violating the civil rights of Fort Lee residents to travel freely.

Although Wildstein admitted to being the mastermind of the plan, he told the court that he was knowingly aided by Kelly and Baroni.

7. I remember a story about Christie as Fed Prosecutor. He was on the fire list during the Albetrto

Gonzalez scandal. Around the same time, Christie announced an investigation into Menendez (current NJ Senator) right before voting for his first Senate campaign. After the election he quietly dropped the suit. Guess what. He magically got off the to be fired list. Luckily it wasn't enough to sway NJ voters an

10. A Passage That I Wish....

that I had written. An eloquent take down of this creep by former Star-Ledger reporter Bob Braun:

http://www.bobbraunsledger.com/4759-2/

In the end, Chris Christie proved to be exactly what he was–a nobody. A nobody who lost a local Morris County election but who had a brother who could buy him a job he didn’t deserve and had no right to fill, the federal prosecutor’s position in New Jersey.

With his media friends, he built a false image of himself as a corruption fighter–even when he exploited his authority for his own corrupt political ends: Going after Democrats and Republicans who stood in his way, concocting entrapment schemes, leaking toxic information to hurt potential rivals.

The last and worst was his manipulation of the sicko Solomon Dwek to put the final nail in former Gov. Jon Corzine’s political coffin. Yes, that occurred after he resigned–but we all know Christie left behind loyalists who timed the “Bid Rig” investigation to come out just before the 2009 gubernatorial election.

Corruption fighter? What a joke. Believe that one and there is a bridge over the Hudson I could sell you–complete with red traffic cones ready for a new traffic study.

Now he will come home to New Jersey, a wounded beast thirsting for retribution, undoubtedly hoping a Republican will capture the White House and he can obtain yet another unmerited political job.
