      Yeah, great job filling in all the blanks CNN. Perhaps you should wait until you HAVE a story BEFORE you post a "clever" headline. They used to do that in the old days. It is only breaking news when there is a story to be told. Amateurs.

      Wrong mayor. Cory Booker is mayor of Newark, Mack is mayor of Trenton.

      I can tell you've never lived outside the US. Actually, this sort of thing happens (government corruption) ALL THE TIME in many countries. Actually, at least here the fbi is trying to fight it, in other places it goes unpunished. Many Americans don't have a clue as to how good they have it here.

      Can you imagine Christie meeting with foreign dignitaries? What a total embarrassment that would be for the U.S.

      I hope not. He is the only one who tries to keep the teachers union from beggaring us all. Spending $31,000.00 per student in my town & they needed remedial classes at the community college. This year the school ranking improved & they spent $18,000.00 because everyone got sick of throwing money at it & we had the backing to make it stick.
