Christie Tied To Mafia: Christie Family In Mob


Some how this story seemed to slip under the radar, but I dug it up while reading news stories about Chris Christie.

There has been several references comparing Chris Christie to Tony Soprano but there has been no major stories making the actual connection of  Chris Christie’s Mafia Connection.

The report over at Main Justice a US Attorney Watchdog, reported Distant Christie Family Member Has Ties to Mafia.

The Chris Christie Mafia Connection

So just how bad is the connection between the NJ Mafia and Chris Christie? Well Christie’s Aunt was married to the organized crime family the Genovese crime family . The connection is with Tino Fiumara who has been convicted twice on racketeering charges and sentenced to 25 years in federal prison. Fiumara also has been linked by investigators to several grisly murders, The Times reported. It is also common knowledge the members of the mafia marry into other families with mafia connections.

Christie told The Times he learned of Fiumara’s involvement in organized crime in 1977, when Christie was 15 and Fiumara was 36, by reading The Star-Ledger of New Jersey. The limited interaction between Christie and Fiumara over the past 30 years included the two bumping into each other once in the mid-1990s at a restaurant and a scheduled encounter in 1991.  Both encounters occurred before Christie became New Jersey’s top prosecutor in 2002.

But there are two recorded incidents of Christie Meeting with his mafia family. The restaurant meeting occurred when Fiumara was out on parole. The scheduled encounter occurred when Christie visited Fiumara, at the request of Christie’s uncle, in a Texas prison, Christie told The Times. “My best recollection is we updated each other on what was going on with the family,” Christie told The Times. “It was not a very long visit.”

Christie claims that he had limited interaction with this mafia family member. But did a US Attorney General and Candidate for governor have a cloak and dagger meeting with a man who he knew for over 15 years was involved in the mafia.

Furthermore, just think about the statement. I went to visit a member of the mob to “discuss the family”. Its bad enough NJ is known as the Soprano state. The corruption and scandal in our state has already gone to far and WE DONT NEED THE MOB CONNECTIONS OF CHRIS CHRISTIE RUNNING THIS STATE.

How connected is the Christie Family to the mafia?

The Christie Family Mob Connection is pretty deep. While Fiumara may not be the God Father, according to top law Enforcement officials, Fuimara currently sits on a three-person ruling panel that oversees the Genovese family.

During his background check by the FBI for the job as US Attorney General, Christie hid his mob connection from the FBI, stating he did not make the revelation because his mafia connections where a personal matter and not a professional matter.

When questioned in a NY Times Interview in 2007 why he was tougher during his tenure as Attorney General on public corruption and street gangs than on organize crime, Christie replied “the Mafia is much more prominent on HBO than in New Jersey.”

Fact is, crimes were committed and people who committed these crimes were not held accountable.  Their companies were made to pay hefty ransoms to Christie’s friends, former bosses, future campaign contributors and cronies – all in the name of “justice”.  Christie’s multi-million dollar bribe scandals and his connection to organized crime makes you wonder why anyone vote for Chris Christie. I totally understand that Jon Corzine needs to go and Dagget has bashed both candidates about illegal campaign finance. but people need to wake up and realize that a vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil.

What’s worse is that Christie and his supporters defend a separate class of justice to those who can and will make a deal to line the pockets of Christie’s friends, former bosses, future campaign contributors and cronies. We need to say no to the Christie-style of justice that makes his friends and cronies rich.

That is the type of person who is seeking the Governorship.  How many more of his friends, former bosses, future campaign contributors and cronies will benefit from taxpayer funds if he were to win?  We certainly can’t trust him to use discretion since he has already proven incapable of that. With the Christie family in mob its easy to see why Chris Christie engaged  in such unethical behaviors and gets away with speeding and driving an unregistered vehicle.

This is just another reason that we need to say no to the broken two-party system. Only voter’s have the power to change the government. We must refuse to be held captive to the broken two-party system that has brought a plaque of scandal and corruption into our government by fear of voting for a third party. Its time to send a message to politicians in NJ and all across the country. Its time to end politics as usual.
