Governor Christie touts his alleged leadership in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy as one reason people should choose him as president. But when you blow away the smoke and mirrors, it’s clear that his handling of this disaster was a disaster in and of itself.
Three years after the storm hit New Jersey, there are people still out of their homes, state assistance is drying up, and state-approved unscrupulous contractors are becoming rich while ordinary people suffer.
This week, a group of Sandy survivors camped out across the street from the State House to raise awareness of the situation and help work toward a solution. I spoke with Amanda Devecka-Rinear of the New Jersey Organizing Project and heard the stories of several survivors.
