Fact-checking Chris Christie on the 'Late Show with David Letterman'

To hear Gov. Chris Christie's claim, go to 13:50.

In between pulling doughnuts out of his pockets, Gov. Chris Christie talked about  federal aid for Hurricane Sandy victims during his appearance Monday on the "Late Show with David Letterman."

The late-night host questioned whether delays in securing Sandy aid could have happened at any point.

"It didn’t happen eight years ago," Christie told Letterman. "I mean, in Katrina, they approved $60 billion within 10 days of the storm on a voice vote."

PolitiFact New Jersey looked at the congressional record and found that Christie's claim wasn't entirely accurate. They rated the claim Half True; read the full report.
