[su_right_ad]It’s not getting better for the New Jersey governor.

The U.S. attorney’s office in New Jersey has interviewed former Hunterdon County Assistant Prosecutor Bennett Barlyn, who claims he was fired because he objected to Christie officials dismissing indictments against political allies of the governor. Barlyn confirmed the investigation to ABC News. It was first reported by the International Business Times..

Barlyn was dismissed from the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office in September 2010 and later brought a whistleblower case against the Christie administration that currently is in the discovery phase. He has consistently said he was fired for objecting to the quashing of indictments against the county’s sheriff and two subordinates — all political supporters of Christie’s.

    Lets see we have the now missing OOPS Perry who maybe in a court room near somewhere Texas.
    Got Scott I just maybe indicted myself Walker.
    Now we have the Christ i keep my staff close but not close enough for them to tell me about crooked things they are doing in my name Christie being once again facing charges.

    any way you look at it, no matter how it comes out for all of them, it shows lack of leadership and moral charter. all non starts to be the President!

      “lack of leadership and moral character”
      Isn’t that one of the planks in the republican platform?

    You got to love Christie…Like Stewart pointed out …he signed the legislation that allowed the Governor of New Jersey accept payment for foreign trips…ie Abdullah paying for trip to London and $30,000 hotel tab…remember as federal prosecutor himself..he knows all the ins and outs of the system to avoid prosecution

    He is quickly running (not literally, he hasn’t run since he was two years old) himself out of contention. He could definitely “occupy” the position. Hell, he could occupy several positions. In the video I saw from London, he had to turn sideways to get through a door.

      Turning sideways might not help.

        You’re probably right, he’s just about the same l-a-r-g-e size all the way around.

      it takes dedication and hard work to remain obese after the surgery. He must be liquifying pizza to maintain his weight

      • Larry Schmitt February 6th, 2015 at 5:28 pm

        What surgery did he have?

        • tracey marie February 6th, 2015 at 5:51 pm

          Lap band, that is why I said liquify

      • arc99 February 6th, 2015 at 6:11 pm

        my wife had that surgery. her weight loss was temporary and she did not have to liquify anything. her metabolism adjusted and she started to gain again.

        I would also point out that Gov. Christie’s weight is about as relevant as HIlary Clinton’s crow’s feet and laugh lines, which is not at all.

          I will not apologize for my comment arc

    Well whatever he’s done, I’m sure he can just pass a law that makes it legal.–the-trail-to-the-path-to-the-route-to-the-road-to-the-white-house

    • Larry Schmitt February 6th, 2015 at 4:30 pm

      Imagine the outcry if the president signed an executive order to make something he wanted to do legal.

  5. Jake February 6th, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    Don’t you know by now that these “laws’ do not apply to the Republican Party. They are the elite, they are above you and you should know your place is to serve them. Now get back to work – show’s over.

    How much money is Jersey wasting on trying this slob? They need to make him pay back every cent if/when he is found guilty.

  7. arc99 February 6th, 2015 at 6:13 pm

    OK folks, I see the fat references are coming fast and furious.

    To each their own, obviously it is a free country and a free forum. You are all quite entitled to make irrelevant references to Gov. Christie’s weight and appearance.

    I am entitled to express my displeasure when you do. Do we have a deal?

    You know that sound, the sound of a tin cup being swiped across a row of evenly spaced steel bars back and forth. It could be one the last things we hear from mister Christie but then again he could skate away on a one horse open sleigh.
