    What conspiracy theory? If you think the reality that money has a big influence on politics is a conspiracy theory, then you need a serious reality check.

    Maybe they can use this money to save Atlantic City.
    Last owner is stuck with the bill. Exxon can always try to go after past owners.
    But 3.5 cents on the dollar compared to damages asked.

    Perhaps the damages sought weren't based in reality. Considering the settlement, possibility could very well be that NJ's assessment for damages wasn't solid or grossly exaggerated. .

    Or so. The idea of a government entity suing for damages at exaggerated levels is hardly unprecedented.

    Nor is a company stating the damages are over blown. That works both ways.

    This deal still has to be approved by the judge. What will be interesting is if the judge doesn't approve because the settlement paid was too low, or approves but has doubts on why NJ made a deal for such a low amount just before the judge was set to make a ruling on the case.

    Then the questions will fly. And it will hurt Christie big time. He makes a bad deal which will mean the taxpayers will pick up most of the bill to clean up Exxon's mess? That's not going to look good to people on either side.

    It sure does. Part of the game. However, unless there is something to show otherwise, it would certainly appear, based on the NJ's willingness to settle is that its certainly the latter. Unless you have some conclusive evidence that nefarious influence caused the decision.
