Christie partying despite scandal
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wished Howard Stern a happy birthday during a celebration in New York for the radio personality.
Christie's appearance Friday came amid new developments in a political payback scandal that has ensnared his administration. A former associate accused the governor of making inaccurate statements during a news conference on the scandal. Christie denied that.
The governor appeared at the Hammerstein Ballroom to wish Stern a happy 60th birthday.
Stern says that Christie is a great governor and that he would be upset to see Christie get into political trouble.
Christie made way quickly for another New Jersey representative he said he knew the audience really wanted to see: Jon Bon Jovi.
The governor didn't take questions while heading into the event.
