Gov. Chris Christie’s claim was not a factual statement

The Jersey dude claimed to have put 10% of the NJ state legislature in jail. A bold claim, for sure. His exact words: “As you know when I was U.S. Attorney we wound up putting 10 percent of the state Legislature in jail during my seven years.”

In fact he actually charged five Democratic legislators and they all served jail time. That’s 3%. An impressive record, but undermined by his narcissistic need to inflate the numbers.
