[su_r_sky_ad]So, Governor Christie, how’s that presidential campaign going?

Federal prosecutors issued a new subpoena to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey this week seeking possible evidence of claims New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s administration retaliated against the Democratic mayor of Jersey City.

The subpoena seeks records from a broad range of former authority officials regarding their interactions with Jersey City, according to a person familiar with the matter, including two Christie allies who resigned from the authority amid the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal, David Wildstein and Bill Baroni.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop has said that the Christie administration punished himwhen he failed to endorse the governor’s reelection in 2013.

Within an hour of his decision not to provide Mr. Christie a coveted endorsement from across the political aisle, Mr. Fulop has said, meetings his administration had scheduled with state commissioners were abruptly canceled.

Documents uncovered during investigations of the bridge scandal contain indications that Mr. Fulop was considered an enemy of the administration.

They include a message Mr. Wildstein sent ordering “radio silence” in response to requests from the mayor of Fort Lee seeking relief from a week of heavy traffic triggered by the lane closures. “His name comes right after mayor Fulop,” Mr. Wildstein wrote.

A person familiar with the latest subpoena to the Port Authority said it was a broad request covering correspondence among aides and allies of Mr. Christie, including Messrs. Wildstein and Baroni, that touched on any efforts to penalize Mr. Fulop or Jersey City over his failure to endorse Mr. Christie.

Grab the popcorn. This should be entertaining![su_fb][su_center_ad]

    Now that “Jesus” Christie seems to be running for a place on the Republican ticket, we might see some dirty tricks from his own side here – popcorn time indeed!

    When is he going to admit that his presidential run is pretty much over? All the turds are rising to the surface, too many to keep hidden now.
