Scandal-struck Christie to meet with Sandy victims (1/16/14)

MANAHAWKIN - Gov. Chris Christie is meeting with homeowners today affected by Superstorm Sandy even as the Legislature prepares to issue new subpoenas in its investigation into the state's traffic jam scandal.

The governor will travel to Manahawkin where he'll make an announcement marking a Sandy recovery milestone. The event will be held at the Stafford Township Volunteer Fire Company.

The Legislative subpoenas will be served once the New Jersey Assembly votes to renew its authority to continue the probe in the new legislative session.

Today's vote by the legislature is a formality. The Assembly already has tapped Reid Schar, the federal prosecutor who helped convict former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich of corruption, to aid in the investigation.

Assemblyman John Wisniewski, who's leading the investigation, says the new subpoenas will seek emails and text messages from key Christie aides.

The Republican governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate hasn't been implicated in the scandal.
