    Christie's Got Some 'Splainin' to Do'


    New Jersey Governor and possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie has some "splainin' to do".

    If  the news reports are correct that members of Christie's senior staff  orchestrated a shutdown of the George Washington bridge as a political  means of punishing a Democratic mayor for not backing the Republican  governor in his bid for re-election, there is hell to pay.

    Even  more troubling is if the action was not limited to certain staff  members, but went all the way to the top and was condoned by Christie  himself.

    There are possible legal ramifications which may also come into play.

    At this point in time, the full story has yet to be revealed.

    At this point in time, we don't have all the facts.

    Christie, however, has not gone far enough yet today with his press statement.

    Chrisite  owes it to the people of New Jersey to lay it out who ever was  involved. He needs to put a magnifying glass on the emails and texts  which had blotted out, redacted, the names of those involved sending the  emails and texts. Those names should be released immediately.

    If  the Governor does not get on top of this developing story with the  utmost transparency immediately, his presidential aspirations may be  down the drain.

    I  do agree with CNN Crossfire co-host S.E. Cupp that if culpability is  found to be with Christie, he has no choice but to resign for the good  of the state and the people of New Jersey and for the good of his party.

    From  the Cornfield, Governor, spill the beans and put it all out on the  table. I say this as an independent voter in a very conservative state  who agrees with your moderate approach to governing.
