At a school groundbreaking in Camden, South Jersey political boss George Norcross poked fun at NJ Gov. Chris Christie, who is still licking wounds from the Bridgegate controversy. Politicker NJ Reports:
But then the South Jersey Democratic power broker moved on to discuss an annual fundraiser for the Larc School in Bellmawr, which includes closing the Benjamin Franklin Bridge to traffic for annual charitable run.
“There’s one thing the governor, with all his power, has not been able to achieve,” he said. “I’m the one who’s able to shut down the bridge.”
The joke garnered big laughs from the crowd and a smile from the governor, who was sitting a few feet away from Norcross.
It’s funny because it’s both terrifying and true.
