What happens when Lonegan’s lawyers start deposing Corzine aides?

There is a clear difference of opinion between Governor Jon Corzine and Nathan Doughty, the Democratic Mayor of Middle Township, over the events that led to the arrest of potential GOP gubernatorial candidate Steve Lonegan outside Corzine’s town hall meeting on Sunday. Doughty says that the local police department was simply following orders from “the governor’s people.” Corzine said that’s “nonsense.”

One Democratic strategist suggested that Corzine needs to make this story go away – before Lonegan files a civil rights suit against Middle Township and starts taking depositions of gubernatorial staffers and local officials that could make this situation exponentially worse than it is right now.
