Feds probe Christie’s possible misuse of Sandy funds

Federal investigators are looking into whether embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie misused about $2 million in Superstorm Sandy relief funds for an ad campaign that put him in the spotlight during an election year, a lawmaker said on Monday.
Already enmeshed in a scandal over snarled traffic at the George Washington Bridge, Christie, a rising star in the Republican party, is now being audited by the Inspector General at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, said New Jersey Congressman Frank Pallone Jr., a Democrat.
The inspector is focusing on a federally-financed $25 million Jersey shore marketing campaign that included a television commercial featuring Christie and his family. The ad campaign cost $2 million more than a competing bid would have cost without the Christie family, according to the congressman.
