Steve Kornacki previously reported AAA suing Port Authority over poll increases.
For all of you following Steve today, one of the main themes of what he is reporting on is how Christies appointees to the NJ Port Authority reallocated PA money to NJ Transportation fund for Christie's pet projects - many in communities that have Dem Mayors who love love love Christie for bringing infrastructure dollars to them.
1. He wants to run for Pres., he needs to get the attention of the nation- his plan requires him to have big ticket projects in NJ, but the transportation fund is dry, he need to replenish it and the Christie appointed big-wigs at PA help him. Christie then looks reaaaal good to low information voters who see grinning NJ Dems elbowing their way to his side for photo opps. Then he hugs Obama. He rises in the national polls. Check mark.
2. No story in the Christie saga is a small story - I believe they all connect, that is why this story is hugely important and worth following. The AAA smells something fishy and the smell is coming from dry land...
