Chris Christie Refuses To Talk About Cuomo’s Moreland Problem

Mimicking New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s refusal to discuss bridgegate, Chris Christie, head of the Republican Governor’s Association, an organization presumably in the business of helping out Republican gubernatorial candidates, has refused to field questions regarding the Moreland scandal.

Melissa Russo, a government affairs reporter for NBC-New York, tried to ask Christie about the scandal which is garnering national attention.  She was rebuked by the New Jersey governor, telling her “You’re wasting your time.”

Russo tweeted the incident:

Russo also quoted Christie as saying he doesn’t “comment on other people’s investigations.”

During Christie’s Bridgegate scandal, Governor Cuomo remained silent and withheld any criticism despite the incident involving a top appointee to the NY Port Authority expressing that he thought laws had been broken.  Cuomo’s Republican opponent Rob Astorino believes there is something more behind the mutual silence between the governors, something that is preventing Christie from supporting his candidacy.

Via WNYC:

At a press conference Tuesday, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino was asked how he felt about the lack of support he has received from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who controls a large pot of campaign cash through the Republican Governor’s Association.  

“A lot has changed since Bridgegate,” Astorino said, referring to the lane closure scandal on the George Washington Bridge this past fall. “Now I don’t know if there’s a connection with he and Andrew Cuomo on Bridgegate, or if Cuomo has something that he’s holding back, information that could be damaging to the governor.”

Astorino did not elaborate on what that “something” might be.

“I think whatever Governor Christie knew, or didn’t know, is probably the same for Governor Cuomo,” he said. “And if there’s anything being held back that Governor Cuomo knows, and if he’s holding that over Governor Christie’s head, I don’t know.”

Christie, campaigning as chairman of the Republican Governor’s Association in July, told the media that he would not support the Republican candidate in New York, saying his campaign was “a lost cause.”

Christie reiterated today that he was abandoning Astorino, saying “it’s on the candidate” to improve his numbers.

Christie has reserved the right to reverse his stance if polling changes, seemingly unaware that his assistance could facilitate that change for Astorino.  

In the meantime, while Christie refuses to discuss the Moreland scandal, feel free to watch this video regarding Morelandgate, a montage of intense media coverage of the corruption.
