Description

NJ Gov. Chris Christie and his hand-picked appointees directed that $25 million of the federal superstorm Sandy rescue money be used in a TV advertising campaign that starred Christie during his reelection year. The Press found that the section committee paid a politically connected PR firm $2 million more in profits than the losing bidder - who said they would not put the governor in the TV commercials.
