If you’re an internet billionaire, maybe you think the world revolves around you, and the world springs from your laptop. Well, I got news for him. This is not a new law, Tesla is operating illegally, and as of April 1st, they will be out of business unless they decide to open a franchise.
New Jersey Coalition of Automobile Retailers President Jim Appleton • Being a total dick to Elon Musk about that ban on selling Tesla vehicles outside of dealerships in New Jersey.

Yes, we knew Christie was a bully. But we didn’t know his crew was crazy enough to put people’s lives at risk in Fort Lee as a means to pressure the mayor. We didn’t know he would use Hurricane Sandy aid as a political slush fund. And we certainly didn’t know that Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer was sitting on a credible charge of extortion by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno.
Newark Star-Ledger editorial writer Tom Moran • Offering regrets for the paper’s endorsement of Chris Christie prior to last year’s election, partly defending the paper’s thinking at the time, but ultimately admitting “we blew this one.”

The Time Chris Christie Shut Down a Public Television Station That Did a Tough Story on Him

"At the time, it sounded far-fetched that a governor would care so much about being burned by state television that he’d shut it down. But then again, with the news last week, anything seems possible.”

The bottom line is, it’s not fair for the governor to hold Sandy funds hostage for the City of Hoboken because he wants me to give back to one private developer.
Hoboken, NJ mayor Dawn Zimmer • Discussing her city’s own version of Bridgegate. Zimmer says that her city has received only a small fraction of the funding it asked for in the wake of Hurricane Sandy due to a push from Christie and other state officials to approve a large-scale development project in the city. Zimmer, whose city asked for $127 million in aid after Sandy, only received $342,000—despite the fact that the city was 80 percent underwater after the storm. “I know it’s very complicated for the public to really understand all of this, but I have a legal obligation to follow the law, to bring balanced development to Hoboken,” Zimmer told MSNBC. Christie denies the claims, and his office went so far as to attack the source of the information.

Bridge scandal hasn’t soured Gov. Chris Christie’s public image in New Jersey

  • 50% of registered New Jersey voters contacted for a new Quinnipiac University poll believe Governor Chris Christie’s claims, that he did not know about or have a role in a traffic scandal currently rocking his administration, but acknowledge it will likely have an effect on any presidential ambitions he may have had.
  • 40% said they now see Gov. Christie as a bully, though the New Jersey governor also found largely favorable responses among those polled, with 54 percent saying they saw Christie as more of a leader than a bully. source

I am embarrassed and humiliated by the conduct of some of the people on my team. There’s no doubt in my mind that the conduct that they exhibited is completely unacceptable and showed a lack of respect for the appropriate role of government and for the people that were trusted to serve.
Gov. Chris Christie • Apologizing to the general public during a press conference on Thursday morning (full transcript here), shortly before announcing that he had fired former aide Bridget Kelly for lying about his staff’s involvement in an apparent attempt to get revenge on a mayor who wouldn’t endorse the governor’s re-election bid. Christie took responsibility for the scandal, but swore he had no knowledge of what was taking place, and said he would travel to Fort Lee to personally apologize to the town’s mayor. The Justice Department and Senate Commerce Committee have both announced plans to further investigate the matter. source
