First it was “inequality,” unemployment benefits extension, minimum wage hikes and “promise zones” (no word on whether shovel-ready jobs have been discovered) from the serial promise-breaker’s Obamacare/Obamanomics-diversion machine.
Now its an investigation of the post-Hurricane Sandy disaster-relief-bribe paid from Obama’s Democratic Party-mob to divert attention from Benghazi lies with visions of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie throwing GOP Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney under the bus right before the 2012 election:
Here’s one way Chris Christie can get everyone to stop talking about his administration’s George Washington Bridge scandal: find himself under investigation by the federal government.
Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., tells CNN on Monday that the feds are investigating Christie’s use of $25 million in government aid following superstorm Sandy. At issue is an ad campaign the state launched after the storm to try and bring back tourists. The campaign the state launched last April, which prominently featured the governor and his family, gave $4.7 million to the winning ad firm. That’s a little more than $2 million above than the next-lowest bidder. But that lower bid’s campaign did not include the Christies.

All of this is made more complicated (and perhaps more fishy) because 2013 was an election year for the governor. And the ad campaign (which played in swing-states like Pennsylvania) potentially gave Christie more exposure for a possible 2016 presidential run.
“This was money that could have directly been used for Sandy recovery. And, as you know, many of my constituents still haven’t gotten the money that is owed them to rebuild their homes or raise their homes or to help,” Pallone told CNN.
Four dead in Benghazi and the Obama Administration official in charge of blaming a warned-of-al-Qaeda-attack on an anti-Muslim video is promoted from U.N. Ambassador to National Security Advisor. Hillary is not indicted. The IRS acts a political arm of Obama’s re-election campaign by denying conservatives the right to engage in free political speech and no one is fired. Obamacare mandates leave millions uninsured. Obamanomics doubles the number of underemployed in five years. The national debt is a threat to America’s future.
But the priority of Obama’s gangster government is how $25B was spent by the George Washington Bridge-closing gang in the Garden State.
Yet, just last May, President Barack Obama praised New Jersey’s Sandy-relief efforts:
