NJ Governor Chris Christie Booed at Super Bowl Event in NYC: VIDEO

Xlvii_christie

NJ Governor Chris Christie was booed today at a Super Bowl event in Times Square.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Meanwhile, Christie attacked the New York Times and David Wildstein after an article published yesterday said "evidence exists" that Christie knew of the bridge closings while they were happening.

Christie sent out an email to allies and friends, titled "5 Things You Should Know About The Bombshell That's Not A Bombshell" which BI has published in full.

"A media firestorm was set off by sloppy reporting from the New York Times and their suggestion that there was actually "evidence" when it was a letter alleging that 'evidence exists,'" Christie's office wrote in the email.

The next four points in the email defended Christie and attacked Wildstein. The email dug into Wildstein's background — including a mention of a time when, as a 16-year-old, he sued over a local school board election.

The email also noted that Wildstein has been looking for immunity. His lawyer, Zegas, has said that Wildstein has a "story to tell" if he were granted immunity.

  1. So, we're supposed to believe that, instead of being deeply personally involved in criminal activities, that as Governor, he was utterly oblivious to criminal activities going on around him, unconcerned with major (and nationally reported) safety issues going on in his state (on the anniversary of 9/11, no less), and unspeakably bad at vetting the crooks and assholes he hires.

    This is good, why?

  2. all of a sudden wilstein is a degenerate and not qualified to hold his position it was christie who put him that position . it was christie who has known him for years . christie expected everyone to fall on their swords . but look around each couple of days new allegations appear and a whole new cast of crooks

  3. Domestically, 2014 is going to be an entertaining year, I think.

  4. If they have evidence of Christie's involvement in the bridge lanes shut down, they should show it. You can't just claim to have evidence and not show it, and expect reasonable people to believe you.

  5. The giant David Beckham ad behind him is epic in so many different ways.

  6. Christie is toast.

  7. I'd be more satisfied if they chased him down the avenue with pitchforks and torches but this will do for now.

    A little OT, but shouldn't the Roman numeral version of "48" be "IIL", not "XLVIII"? Maybe it's the brain injuries in the NFL.

  8. @DOMMYLUC

    XLVIII is the correct roman numeral, just like III is 3 (not IIV) and VIII is 8 (not IIX). Next year it will be XLIX.

    The only times subtractive principle is allowed are for 4, 9, 40, 90, 400, and 900.

  9. Drama queens get more attention than understudies. I'm learning more about this because he can't keep his mouth shut than I've learned on my own. He is a moron.

  10. Crooked politics and politicians. What else is new?

  11. up yours fat ass!

  12. Supposedly, Christie didn't know that the closed lanes were part of a political retribution plan. So, when he finds out, what does he do?

    He fires his chief of staff without talking to her. Wouldn't it be logical to call her in and ask, "Why did you do this stupid thing?"

    His actions make no sense.

    This story is going to keep dribbling out for months. He has zero chance for the GOP nomination.

  13. let's hope he is nominated, that way they lose again!

    Andrew, he's is looking for immunity. That's why he isn't showing the evidence yet. He's dangling the evidence he claims to have in front of those who can give him immunity. He will show them what he has when he gets immunity.

  15. Boos are always louder when closest to the mic picking them up... Seems like they're coming from the back where the guy videotaping is booing, himself.

    I believe he was booed, but I also believe every other politician in American history has also been booed.
