... and what does Adelson have to do with hate crimes in France?

Your Jew hatred and jealousy are embarrassingly apparent.

Why did the committee hold a hearing where witnesses repeated what they'd already said in the report? To see if they'd say anything more & to have the chance to question what they said. The fact that they didn't give any additional info also tells us something. Does Gov. Christie think the committee shouldn't investigate the closures?

Brian said gov biggest sin was the damage control
Chrissy biggest sin is incompetence in hiring these fools

Ps it will take a lot of public readings of the mastro report for the taxpayers to get their money's worth.

Sharpton? What did he have to do with closing access lanes to the GWB?

Hey, MC, does Sheldon Adelson cut you a check or do you work for free?"

Fairly disappointing post from a black guy with so many past posts on racism.
Does anyone ask you about Al Sharpton?

This guys statement is complete hogwash and just another deflection!
It's all what he "believes" or to his "knowledge"...
He can't prove a negative! period!!!
Until I hear Christie swear under oath that he didn't know anything about this prior to it happening...i don't want to hear any more speculation about this!

They are still talking about a traffic study! Yet there seems to be no study coming forth, or any evidence of a paper or electronic trail about a traffic study.

Nobody can testify as to what someone else knew. No such testimomny would be allowed in a real court.

How can a guy who kept saying he didn't know anything know that other people didn't know anything either? Huh?
He should speak for himself.

40% of the hate crimes in France are now against Jews - who represent less than 1% of the population - but, hey, let's have the 300th show on the orange cones at the bridge last year.
