New Book Opens Up About Christie - My9 New Jersey

New Book Opens Up About Christie

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

There is a new book that will be released on Election Day called “Double Down Game Change 2012” and it makes five bombshell revelations about Governor Chris Christie.

In the book there is a memo that’s cited from former presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s vetting team that looks into why Christie was not picked as Romney’s running mate.

One of the issues they had was that Christie’s brother Todd Christie was implicated in a securities and exchange investigation into stock fraud. While 15 traders were indicted, Todd was not and at that time Chris Christie was the U.S. Attorney.

Another issue that was cited was Governor Christie’s medical history and his decision to undergo lap band surgery while hiding it from the public.

In addition, the book mentions that Governor Christie worked as a lobbyist for the securities industry and that he was involved in local county politics in Morris County and was sued by his GOP opponents in 1994 for saying that they were under investigation by the local county prosecutor.

Red Bank Council candidate Sean Di Somma and State Senate candidate Niki Trunk chimed in on the timing and information in this book. “When you look at these allegations number one, most of them have been well known amongst New Jersey political circles. Number two, when you look at the more salacious of these charges, what you realize is that ultimately at the end of the day the governor did nothing wrong when he was the U.S Attorney,” Di Somma said.

“The governor has such a strong record that he has been able to establish over the last 4 years he’s earned the right to be reelected, so things like this where he’s been vetted and he now has a proven track record, I don’t’ think it will impact anything at all,” Trunk said.
