It's Time to Stop Joking and Come Clean, Governors

What do scandal-embroiled Republican Governors Chris Christie and Pat McCrory have in common? Why, cracking jokes about their involvement in their respective scandals, of course. Back in December, Christie joked off his involvement in the BridgeGate lane closures, saying “I worked the cones. Unbeknownst to anyone, I was working the cones.” Now, this week, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory said regarding scrutiny over the third largest coal ash spill in U.S. history, ““It’s as though I actually went there with a shovel. I’m waiting for that accusation.” Enough is enough. It’s time these GOP Governors stop joking and come clean with the truth about their involvement in these scandals.
