Tea Party Patriots: Unlike Christie, Obama Hasn't Held Staff Accountable
Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder and National Coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots, said her group was still waiting for President Barack Obama to hold any of his own top officials accountable as Chris Christie did on Thursday.
The Republican New Jersey Governor fired two of his top aides Thursday for their roles in closing down lanes on the George Washington Bridge to allegedly enact political revenge on a New Jersey mayor.
The closures impacted children going to schools and caused massive traffic delays that even resulted in the death of woman when EMT vehicles and first responders were delayed.
"Abuse of power by government officials is wrong, whether it's closing lanes in Ft. Lee, using the IRS to target political opponents, or waiving the law regarding ObamaCare," Martin said in a statement. "Today, Gov. Christie held some subordinates accountable. Time will tell whether this is enough. We're still waiting for President Obama to hold anyone accountable."
President Barack Obama has not fired any of the top officials involved in scandals in his Department of Justice (Fast and Furious), Health and Human Services Department (Obamacare), or State Department (Benghazi).
