So Christie knew nothing and his staff refuses to talk. And all of them are expecting us to be a-ok with it.

It’s no longer (entirely) about the accusations but about the response to the accusations, and all the accused have proven, with their stonewalling and evasion, that they don’t deserve the power and authority the public has entrusted them with, because this entire affair has been about openness and accountability from the very start.

Yes, true, we’re all innocent until proven guilty, but as a public servant serving at the pleasure of the people, any allegation of impropriety carries higher consequence than when an ordinary citizen finds them self in a similar circumstance.

If a regular cop or fireman wound up with similar allegations on them, they would be suspended pending outcome of the investigation.
