In Wake of Our Revelation That GOP Gov. Christie Secretly Met with Kochs, Battle Rages Over Whether Top State DEMOCRAT Should Step Down --- Heckuva Job, NJ Media!

During the billionaire Koch brothers' secret Summer Seminar near Vail, Colorado on June 26th, their secret superstar keynote speaker, New Jersey's Republican Governor Chris Christie, criticized President Barack Obama, charging that he "had failed the fundamental test of leadership, which I believe is to tell the people who hired you the truth, unvarnished truth."

Never mind that until our exposť at Mother Jones last week, based on a complete audio recording of his secret speech, Christie himself had failed to tell the truth to those who had hired him, by concealing the fact that he had flown half way across the country to address the Koch's gathering...just a few months after he had also secretly met with billionaire brother David Koch himself one-on-one, "for about two hours --- just the two of us," as Koch revealed during his introductory remarks, in the oil and chemical magnate's New York City office. That secret meeting took place just prior to a major announcement by Christie to unilaterally withdraw from a Northeaster greenhouse gas initiative which Koch had been long advocating against.

So what are the local media obsessed with, given so many of the revelations that suddenly came to light in both our detailed report and its accompanying audio and transcript? Whether or not one of the state's top Democrats, Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver, should step down from her position!

Naturally. Heckuva job, New Jersey media! (And Democrats!)...

(Also, if you were too busy last week to keep up with Parts 1 and 2 of our blockbuster Mother Jones exclusives on the Koch Brothers' super-secret (until now) Summer Seminar near Vail, CO, and the extraordinary audio we obtained and released, as recorded inside of it - my interview on the Peter B. Collins Show podcast, including lots of audio, context and analysis is a great way to catch up in one fell swoop! It's now available here: http://www.bradblog.com/?p=8743 )
