Chris Christie to Donors: “You’ll Get Over” Bridge Scandal

The Jersey governor works his charms at GOP gathering.

One gets the sense that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie believes Bridgegate is somebody else’s problem — because it certainly ain’t his.

Case in point: Christie spent the weekend mingling in Utah with the GOP’s top donors, and let them know that the Bridgegate scandal won’t be a problem if (when) he runs for president in 2016.


“Don’t be so nervous,” he told the assembled moneymen.




“I’m not that worried about it. I hope none of you are worried about it, though I expect some of you are,” Christie told the crowd.

“But you’ll get over it. It will be fine.”

Of course, the LA Times notes, "Christie still faces months of investigations by a special New Jersey legislative committee and a second probe by the local U.S. attorney's office." Other than that, everything should be fine. (LA Times)
