What do you call when one allegedly crooked Governor defends another allegedly crooked Governor? I don't know, but that's an awful lot of alleged crookedness coming from Republican Governors across the country. Gov. Chris Christie, who is fighting for his political life over his Bridgegate scandal came out defending Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who's knee deep in the John Doe corruption case, I kid you not.

Gov. Chris Christie says Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is “a good man” and voiced support for his fellow Republican, who faces allegations he took part in a nationwide criminal scheme to coordinate fundraising with conservative groups.

Christie defended Scott Walker this evening after greeting patrons of a New Hampshire restaurant during a campaign stop for a Republican gubernatorial hopeful. Christie dismissed the allegations against Walker, a potential GOP presidential candidate, as nothing more than attacks from enemies.

“Listen, we all understand that the more you try to bring change to your individual state, and that change starts to sweep the country, the more you’re going to be attacked by your opponents,” said Christie, a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate.

“That’s just something you’re going to have to deal with in this job,” he said. “But I’ve already communicated with Scott today, he’s doing well. I completely support him and I look forward to going to Wisconsin and campaigning for him at the appropriate time.”

Aren't they just like two peas in a pod or a couple of bugs in the rug?
