Christie mentor guilty of squeezing United to open route to near his vacation home

The former chairman of the agency that controls New York City-area airports pleaded guilty Thursday to using his post to get United Airlines to run direct flights to South Carolina so that he could more easily visit his vacation home.

David Samson, a political mentor to Republican Gov. Chris Christie, pleaded guilty to a corruption charge that he wrongfully used his Port Authority of New York and New Jersey post.

Former United CEO Jeff Smisek and two government relations executives left the airline last September after United conducted its own investigation. None has been charged with any criminal wrongdoing.  more

  1. Shocking, people in power unchecked act in their own self interest. And liberals want more of this.

  2. How many corporations were squeezed by hillary and bill for speaking engagements and donations to their foundation for insider contracts though the Dept. of State and other “friends and contacts of the clintons”?

    Has the “equal justice for all” DOJ, “non-partisan” FBI and “ultimate professional” Comey found any intent in the clinton “pay to play” schemes?
    CRICKETS from the partisan, dishonest, political hacks!

  3. Hang him twice.He should know better
    than a DEM-O-RAT… btw He would not
    do any jail time if he were a dem.
