Feds Look Into Gov. Christie's Use of Superstorm Sandy Funds
New Jersey Chris Christie (R) is reportedly being investigated by the feds over his use of Hurricane Sandy funds. Federal auditors are looking into whether the $25 million in Sandy relief money used to promote tourism, including ads featuring the governor and his family, were used appropriately.
Christie is facing scrutiny over the George Washington Bridge scandal. Last week, he fired a top aide after emails revealed she closed lanes of traffic on the bridge as part of political retribution.
A Rasmussen Poll shows that 54 percent of New Jersey voters believe it’s somewhat likely Christie was aware of the traffic jam situation.
Today on The Real Story, NJTV’s chief political correspondent Michael Aron said Christie’s office claims this is just a routine audit, not an investigation. The National Review is questioning the timing of the announcement, given the bridge scandal.
