New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has kept a low profile since “Bridgegate” — the scandal over the politically inspired closing of lanes onto the George Washington Bridge – erupted earlier this month.
That could change tomorrow with his scheduled appearance at a birthday bash for radio shock-jock Howard Stern at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom. According to the New York Daily News, the party to mark Stern’s birthday — which was Jan. 12 — will feature performances by Jon Bon Jovi, John Fogerty and Steven Tyler.
Stern, who’s found a home on SiriusXM satellite radio in 2006 after running afoul of more buttoned-down terrestrial radio bosses, is known for pull-no-punches, often raunchy broadcasts that have been known to feature strippers and porn stars.
Colin Reed, a Christie spokesman, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
This, of course, was the big 6-0 for Stern.
