It’s one thing to go with aggressive negotiating tactics. It’s another to be caught in an indisputable lie. Governor Christie once again showed why he can’t get the benefit of the doubt anymore.
He even accused Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver of lying when she claimed she had tried to arrange a meeting to discuss the issue. As it turns out, she was right. He owes her an apology.
Christie said the Democratic leadership, who held a press conference announcing an arbitration reform bill at 1:30, never reached out to him to work on the compromise bill.
Democratic staffers disproved that assertion after the press conference ended with texts sent to the Governor’s Office yesterday and today.
This time it’s text messages that prove he’s lying, but every other type of evidence has been used before. Youtube celebrity is nice, but he has lost the trust of journalists and the rest of the government.
