1. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
Biggest Scandal: George Washington Bridge closures
Christie’s staffers coordinated in the closing of the GW Bridge in September, causing major delays.
How it turned out: We’ll see.
After an apologetic press conference and firing the staff directly involved, the political world will await the findings of the U.S. District Attorney investigation.
2. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker
Biggest Scandal: The second John Doe investigation of his governorship, and the recall elections that took place after pissing off all these people.
Consequences: Walker won the recall election handily, and hasn’t faced difficulties so far over the investigations.
3. Senator Rand Paul
Consequences: Rand’s office will now footnote all speeches and statements.
