Christie Minions Guilty

The NY Post reports that the Bridge Gate jury has reached a verdict:
Two former aides to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were found guilty on Friday of shutting down entrance lanes to the George Washington Bridge to punish the mayor of Fort Lee for refusing to endorse the governor’s re-election.

It took the federal jury nearly five days to convict Bridget Anne Kelly, Christie’s former deputy chief of staff, and Bill Baroni, the governor’s appointee at the Port Authority, as part of in the biggest political corruption scandal to rock New Jersey in years.

They were found guilty of all seven charges against them, including conspiracy to misuse Port Authority Resources and infringing on citizen’s civil rights. The maximum charge carries 20 years.
The tens of thousands of people, including my brother, who were tied up in a massive traffic jam because of these idiots might feel a little better now.

As serious as this is, and as just as the verdict is -- it's an ant to an elephant when compared to Hillary's skulduggery.

LL - very true of course, but it would appear to be the reason why Pence, and not Christie, is Trump's pick for VP.

Hillary's crimes, that's a whole new intergalactic level of evil. Marvel Comics should create a new villain based on the shit she's pulled. I can't understand why this woman hasn't spontaneously burst into flames yet.

This election is like a Super Bowl game where your team is just getting into field goal formation 55 yards out from the goal posts. There's still plenty of popcorn, potato chips and Doritos left on the coffee table but there's only 3 seconds left on the game clock.
Go Trump.

These vermin should do at least 20 years in prison. Fucking with people's transit to their workplace or much worse - emergency care for themselves or their pets, or any other form of emergency is totally unacceptable. These people created serious hardships for people at the minimum and probably were responsible for human and/or pet deaths at the maximum.

Fuck them and go to hell all of them.

I have to think they went down for fatboy. Who knows what was in it for them, but... if they were in it, he was in it.

As to Hillary versus fatboy et. al. Of course she is worse. But a murder is worse than a thief, but that doesn't mean squat. They both need to be taken down. Too bad they missed fatboy.
