Gov. Chris Christie prevailed on NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg to include former Gov. Donald DiFrancesco as a speaker at the upcoming 911 memorial service after New York initially left DiFrancesco off the invite list, according to a story in this morning’s New York Post.
Irritated by the initial absence from the list of DiFrancesco, who was governor during the 911 terrorist attacks, Christie privately characterized Bloomberg as “Napoleon,” “a dictator” and “a putz,” sources told the Post.
Bloomberg later extended an invitation to DiFrancesco — “saying all the former governor had to do to be included was ask.”
