Wonkette: Bruce Springsteen Snubs Chris Christie

June 22, 2012 – Wonkette has an interesting post out about the relationship between New Jersey's music ambassador Bruce Springsteen and New Jersey's Governor Chris Christie. As many people know, Chris Christie is a big fan of Bruce Springsteen, but his anti-union and anti-working class stances and policies have made Bruce Springsteen unhappy at Governor Christie, and so apparently even though there have been occasions such as at the end of a show the Governor will walk near the dressing room area with his security, Chris Christie is not invited to the after show party, and is snubbed by the Boss.
