Fed Investigating Christie for Improper Use of Hurricane Sandy $

Via CNN:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s office said in a statement on Monday that the “Stronger than the Storm” campaign was part of an “action plan” approved by the Obama administration and developed with the goal of showing that the New Jersey shore was open for business during the first summer after Superstorm Sandy.

“Federal agency reviews are routine and standard operating procedure with all federally allocated resources to ensure that funds are distributed fairly. We’re confident that any review will show that the ads were a key part in helping New Jersey get back on its feet after being struck by the worst storm in state history,” according to the statement issued in response to questions from CNN.

Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds.

CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family. . .

Good lucks with "But President Obama said it was cool" as your defense. When did he approve this? During a hug? The Feds should investigate Bloomberg and Cuomo, too. Who knows what they're really doing. -
