The news that Patton-boggs has been hired to represent Christie shouldn't come as much of a surprise since Robert Luskin, represented Karl Rove during the Valerie Plame trial, he is Roves personal attorney.
Patton Boggs are the biggest lobbyists in the country.
The first time I saw the name Patton Boggs I was doing research on Edward Snowdon and the NSA leaks. They are the top lobbyists on K street. They are heavily involved with the Department Of Defense and the N.S.A.
I wondered who will be paying the tab for this? I was thinking taxpayers....turns out Daily Kos is way ahead of me..Daily Kos: Christie SHOULD NOT use public funds for legal defense!
No problem hiring the most expensive lawyers when it's not on your dime.
It also looks like Patton Boggs are not strangers since Christie used the firm when he shut down the ARC tunnel project so he wouldn't have to payback the funds for the tunnel. NJ Gov Taps Patton Boggs to Fight Tunnel Funds Payback
Wonder where that money went?
Now it looks like federal prosecutors and the F.B.I. are involved. Christie campaign, state GOP issued subpoenas by U.S. Attorney in lane-closure scandal | The Asbury Park Press NJ | app.com

Patton Boggs is lobbying for Singapore.
Looks like scandal pays off for lawyers. Maybe it will pay off for Christie too, he can get a job on Fox News like Karl Rove, maybe even start a non-profit. Just step down and get started, save us all a lot of time and trouble.
Move over Karl....
