The Chris Christie story is big - but there's an awful lot of OTHER political news this week: Like the attempted take-down of Wendy Davis, the President's NSA speech, shenanigans in Congress -- and that indictment of Bob "Governor Ultrasound" McDonnell. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Dona Schwartz Mils discuss from the progressive POV. A production of Engender Media Group.
Things are heating up for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, there is buzz on the political grapevine of possible impeachment...was Governor Chris Christie directly involved with the shutting down of the George Washington Bridge or is this the case of 'independent' and sabotaging 'freelancing'?
As if Bridgegate isn't enough for the New Jersey Governor's plate...currently an investigation is underway into whether Governor Christie misused about $2 million in Superstorm Sandy relief funds for an ad campaign that put him in the spotlight in an election year.
What are your thoughts? Will he survive the scandal? Is he still a viable contender for the 2016 Presidential elections?

Gov. Chris Christie to make bridge controversy part of State of State address.Gov. Chris Christie will tackle the controversy surrounding the George Washington Bridge when he delivers New Jersey's State of the State address Tuesday afternoon, a source close to the governor told CNN.
Normally, a State of a State address doesn't create such a state of interest, but this is different.
Christie is embroiled in multiple scandals and is considered by many to be a GOP frontrunner for the White House in 2016.
When he takes the podium in Trenton, more than just the residents of New Jersey will be listening in, much of the nation will lend an ear too.Kanye West Under Police Investigation for Misdemeanor Assault: Report

This week we have more Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare good news. Then we talk about the Operation American Spring rally that was held this weekend that was supposed to have 10-30 million people show up in Washington DC and camp out there until President Obama resigned. Then we have an update on the Chris Christie Bridge scandal, we have new evidence that has come up that you will want to hear. If we have time I will again discuss Benghazi.
At the end we will have our trademark weekly hall of fame and shame for those politicians and prominent individuals who made great sense or shameful nonsense, respectively.
On tonight's show we are featuring a man who was bullied by Chris Christie, and ended up, an innocent man, opting to do prison time rather than allow the Jersey Bully to have continuous control over his life.
This is his story about Chris Christie. Joined by Julie O'Brien and BB Lawson.
Our regular weekly update centers around the New Republic story on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Its an indepth, honest (and damning) look at Christie's entire career, titled aptly enough:
Chris Christie's Entire Career Reeks -It's not just the bridge
Here's a little preview from that New Republic story by Alec MacGillis:
Has there ever been a political reversal of fortune as rapid and as absolute as the one just experienced by Chris Christie? At warp speed, the governor of New Jersey has gone from the most popular politician in the country to the most embattled; from the Republicans’ brightest hope for 2016 to a man with an FBI target on his back. One minute, he was releasing jokey vanity videos starring Alec Baldwin and assorted celebrity pals; the next, he was being ridiculed by his lifelong idol, Bruce Springsteen. Mere weeks ago, Christie was a straight-talking, corruption-busting everyman. Now, he is a liar, a bully, a buffoon.
What is remarkable about this meltdown is that it isn’t the result of some deep secret that has been exposed to the world, revealing a previously unimagined side to the candidate. Many of the scandals and mini-scandals and scandals-within-scandals that the national media is salivating over have been in full view for years. Even the now-infamous Bridgegate was percolating for months before it exploded into the first major story of the next presidential race.
