    N.J. judges were allegedly pressured to back Paula Dow's nomination to bench

    Just another one in a long list of Christie Bullying everyone around him and he trying to act like one of the Sopranos.
    More and More people are becoming aware of what he really is about and his tactics.

    Three Democratic state senators have asked state Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner to investigate allegations that a Republican lawmaker pressured two Superior Court judges in an attempt to secure former Attorney General Paula Dow’s nomination to the bench,The Star-Ledger has learned. In a June 21 letter to Rabner obtained by the newspaper, the three Essex County lawmakers — Richard Codey, Nia Gill and Ronald Rice — said two judges, then facing renomination, were told Gov. Chris Christie would "end their judicial careers" if they didn’t persuade Gill to agree to sign off on the governor’s nominee.

    I re-read the article and there's nothing in it to indicate that Christie did anything except issue the nomination.

    In fact, it was allegedly Senator O'Toole who made the threats. If there really is a letter with those words in it I'm sure it'll surface.
