The latest Christie epic failure will be investigated. This, along with an investigation of Reform New Jersey Now.

Here's hoping they can make something stick to governor lard ass other than the filling from his favorite jelly doughnuts.

N.J. Assembly committee plans hearing on state blizzard response

"TRENTON Assembly Transportation Committee Chairman John Wisniewski said he plans to hold a hearing on the states response to last weeks blizzard some time late this month.

Wisniewski said he wants to know why large sections of some state highways, such as Route 18, were left unplowed, and plans to ask state Transportation Commissioner James Simpson to testify.

Was it a personnel issue? Was it an equipment issue? Was it a lack of planning issue? Was it an issue that we were overwhelmed by the forces of mother nature? I dont know, said Wisniewski. Why were some municipalities able to dig themselves out and the state wasnt?


The snowstorm gave way to a political storm last week, as Democrats criticized Republican Gov. Chris Christie and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno for both being out of state as the snow was falling. Christie spent the week at Disney World with his family, and Guadagno was on a cruise with her family, including her ailing father. Senate President Stephen Sweeney, a Gloucester County Democrat, was left in charge."
