If Benghazi, IRS Vendettas, NSA Leaks, Bridge-gate, and the Sandy Funds Scandal Don’t Make You Question Both Parties…

The past 12 months have been filled with the most blatant violations of the public trust by both major political parties in many years. The Democrats gave us scandals involving the Benghazi attacks, the IRS and newspaper vendettas, the horrendous constitutional violations of the NSA (which the Republicans also share in under Bush). The Republicans gave us the outrageous extortion schemes involving blocking most lanes of a popular NJ bridge, as well as incredible corruption involving the release of federally-provided Superstorm Sandy funds for victims of the storm. If these very obvious and in-your-face political corruption controversy don’t stir Americans to stop voting for the major parties anymore, then we are truly doomed to a bleak, police-state future…

Washington (CNN) — Two senior state officials in New Jersey are vehemently denouncing allegations of political strong-arming in the governor’s name, the latest in a series of controversies lashing the Christie administration.

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno publicly denied an assertion by Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer that she conditioned Superstorm Sandy recovery money last year on Zimmer’s support for a redevelopment project backed by Christie.

Zimmer said the ultimatum came down in a parking lot and involved a project proposed by a real estate developer, the Rockefeller Group, with ties to Christie.

She said Guadagno invoked Christie’s name in laying out the condition for storm relief and has relayed her story to federal prosecutors.

“Mayor Zimmer’s version of our conversation in May of 2013 is not only false but is illogical and does not withstand scrutiny when all of the facts are examined,” Guadagno said at a Martin Luther King Jr. event in Union Beach.

Zimmer, a Democrat, also said Community Affairs Commissioner Richard Constable made a similar demand regarding storm aid and the real estate plan.

He called the allegations “patently false and absurd on their face.” Constable added that he welcomes a “full and thorough law enforcement review of her libelous claims.”

Zimmer said she stands by her account, remains “willing to testify under oath,” and will answer any questions from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

“The bottom line is, Anderson, I mean, she came and she said this to me, you know, and I stand by my word,” Zimmer told CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on Monday night, referring to her conversation with the lieutenant governor.

“She said she would deny it and she’s denying it,” the mayor said.
