    As much as we love Bridgegate, Election Gate is more fun. $25M to run a bogus election should have gotten press. for more information and the lawsuits that support the claims that Christies administration signed off on false election form, broke ballot laws, had 21 county clerks break laws and then erased all votes from the election machines within 24 hours of the election.
