New Republic magazine digs in the Christie manure pile

Christie's career gets an in-depth look from New Republic magazine.

Plainfield Today readers -- whatever their political leanings -- will not want to miss the New Republic magazine's investigative report on the career of Gov. Chris Christie (see the article here).

In a word, they say, it 'reeks'.

The report, by Alec MacGillis, a senior editor at the New Republic, rakes Christie's career over the coals, drawing attention to a lot of connections that have been laying hidden in plain sight all these years.

Including his associations with powerful Democrats as well as Republicans.

And three sidebar articles to round out the picture --
  • Christie's political 'family tree' (see here);

  • 'Grime and punishment', mapping Christie's political plays (here); and

  • an interesting piece on 'why Hillary Clinton continues to get a free pass (here).
Like all good reporters, MacGillis' little piece on Hillary Clinton leaves an opening for a sequel in the event that Christie escapes Bridgegate unscathed and lives to face Clinton in the next presidential election.
