Christie Lied in His First Political Ad

"In Chris Christie's first successful campaign for public office, he sat down next to his wife and baby, looked into a camera and told voters something that wasn't true," the Washington Post reports.

"That 1994 race was New Jersey's introduction to the brash and confident Christie, whose hardball tactics have repeatedly surprised people -- even in a state that thinks it invented hardball. But in Morris County back then, people thought Christie had learned the downside of playing so rough: That ad helped get him into his first elected office but then helped get him out of it. He was sued for defamation, required to apologize and then defeated at the polls after just one term."
