Short Description: 
N.J. Gov. Christie's administration allegedly shook down a mayor in exchange for Hurricane Sandy aid

N.J. Gov. Chris Christie's administration, allegedly, shook down the mayor of Hoboken in exchange for Hurricane Sandy relief funds. It's the scandal du jour, to be sure, but it's also the latest iteration of the "shock doctrine" -- disaster capitalism.

Abe and Joe look back on the history of this unfortunate practice, and take your calls.
