Christie Subpoenaed Over Fort Lee Lane Closures By State Assemblyman

The Democratic lawmaker investigating September’s controversial lane closures at the George Washington Bridge has subpoenaed any correspondence on the matter between Gov. Chris Christie and Port Authority officials.

The lane closures turned a 30-minute commute from Fort Lee, New Jersey to New York City into a four-hour nightmare and created traffic jams that threatened the ability of first responders to reach destinations. They were ordered and overseen by senior officials of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey who had been appointed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

 

Both officials—one of whom is a high school friend of Christie's—have resigned from the Port Authority. They claim the lane closures were part of a traffic study, but not only had nobody else in New Jersey or at the Port Authority heard of any such study, if the lane closures really were part of a study, why would they have resigned?

 

Instead of a phantom traffic study, this is what seems far more plausible:

A host of circumstantial evidence, not to mention a mother lode of common sense, suggests that aides close to him shut several traffic ramps to the George Washington Bridge after the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee failed to see the wisdom in endorsing the Republican governor.

Christie, of course, denies that there's anything to the suspicion, but he hasn't done anything to offer a credible alternative explanation. And the issue is now attracting national interest: On Monday, West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller asked the Department of Transportation to investigate the matter, and as you can see in the video at the top of the post, it's even made the national broadcast of Inside Edition.

 

Christie clearly hopes his blusterous personality can make this whole thing go away, but in the end, there's only one thing that can settle this issue: An open and transparent account of what actually happened. And until that happens, the more it's going to look like the reason Christie is stonewalling is that he's afraid of what such an account might show.

Ha ha ha.

 

Did you see the part where that "friend" of his who closed the lanes was given a created job, with no job description and no resume on file, and who has been registering the domain names of political opponents and critics and then directing people to competing organizations?

 

Finally the fat, nasty prick is going to be exposed for what he is.

 

And after being exposed for the threatening, bulling, vindictive ass he is, Christie's response is to threaten MORE: "Well, maybe Fort Lee doesn't need any access lanes at all."

 

As one blogger said: "Those are some really nice access lanes you've got there. Would be a real shame if anything bad happened to them."

If he had anything to do with it, it was a big mistake on his part. This isn't just going away.

If he was innocent he wouldn't be dancing around and squirming and evading. This is EXACTLY who he is, and he is exposed. As they say, it isn't the crime, it's the coverup.

Liberals are going into absolute desperation as they see their very brief mandate collapse in colossal failure.

 

2014 is going to be a massacre for the dems and libs.

 

This Christie deal is a perfect example of their absolute and total straw grasping.

You clearly are aware of a very simple and innocent explanation for why Christie's guy arbitrarily closed two of three exit lanes on the busiest bridge IN THE WORLD, for a WEEK, disregarding the usual procedures for such a closing and then lying by testifying that it was for a "traffic study" for which there is no evidence, all after the mayor of that city refused to endorse Christie.

 

Let's hear it.

^^^^^^^ pure desperation.

Let's hear it, Crimson. You say it's baseless, that it is "grasping" - back that claim up. For once in your life actually back up your knee-jerk empty crap.

 

Or you could just keep running away from your own words like the empty windbag you are.

Just facts little woman, just facts. Your grasping at meaningless straws and fantasizing.

 

The left will keep trying to fan a non existent fire and it will fail like barrycare. basically you guys are starting to see the total demise of your agenda, you are realizing that Hillary is no where near the sure thing you thought she was and Christie is a formidable opponent.

 

You are very afraid of him and you are very afraid that all of your hopey changey bullshit has now gone down the toilet.

 

It is what it is and the pendulum always swings back to center.

Eager whoring for your masters, fat man. Just your usual whoring.

 

Your grasping at meaningless straws and fantasizing.

 

I would ask you to justify how anything I said was "fantasizing", but as we have seen, you never support the meaningless, knee-jerk nonsense you bleat.

 

The left will keep trying to fan a non existent fire

 

LOLOL. Nothing non-existent about it, no matter how obediently you suck that neocon cock.

 

and it will fail like barrycare.

 

The ACA is on it's way to being a huge success, no matter how long and loud you moan your obedient lies.

 

basically you guys are starting to see the total demise of your agenda, you are realizing that Hillary is no where near the sure thing you thought she was and Christie is a formidable opponent.

 

Feel free to hide like a frightened child by lying to yourself. We don't mind.

 

You are very afraid of him and you are very afraid that all of your hopey changey bullshit has now gone down the toilet.

 

Yes, yes, whenever another one of your gods is exposed as an idiot, chronic liar, fool, lunatic, or corrupt, snarling fat man, you start whimpering: "But you're SCARED! You ARE! Why are you all LAUGHING like that? Waah!"

 

It is what it is and the pendulum always swings back to center.

 

Yep - and Americans are sick to death of you mindless redneck fools delivering this country into the hands of conmen and thieves, all because they tell you the comforting lies you love to hear.,

Obama lies to the American people almost everyday and your worried about a lane closure. You dumb asses are going down so hard. To even speak the word progressive next year you'll be tarred and feathered! Your hope and change fraud is going to take all of you down with him and you'll cling to his coat as you drown in your own failure that is the mighty liberal progressive. You thought you had that whole socialism thing wrapped up with Obama, only problem is you bet all your chips on a dumb ass who had no experience outside of classroom theory. The real world you choose not to live in is very different.

Why are we wasting time on these phony scandals when we need to get back to the work for the good people of New Jersey?

All communications between Christies office and the Port Authority are being subpoenaed. This is hardly a phony scandal. I doubt those communications will be the last ones. These kinds of vendettas between state politicians are one thing. When you are the front runner on a national ticket, it's quite another. This is just one more incident in a long line of incidents concerning Christies pettiness and anger issues. This might play well in New Jersey. In Iowa, not so much. Nobody has impuned Christie to any extent up until now. And this wasn't pulled out of thin air. By all appearances, he stepped into this one all by himself. He now has no choice but to throw someone close to him under the bus just to save his own ass. Which also won't play well in Iowa. He also can't afford one more issue or gaffe for the next 3 years. Good luck with that one.

Yeah, because you know all about the impact in New York from your Barcalounger in Bumblefuck.

I understand the desire to dig dirt, especially given how popular the governor is in his state, and frankly, nationwide.

 

But honestly, what difference does it make? Are they still having traffic problems??

 

This phony scandal is distracting the governor from doing the people's business like....jobs.

I don't give a banned word about New Yorkers, If the whole city burned to the ground I would say good riddance to the American cesspool.

Of course you feel that way. It's quite common for low-rent redneck losers like you to resent those more educated, wealthy and successful than you are. After all, if you could face your own limitations and take personal responsibility for your shitty life instead of blaming and hating others, you wouldn't be a con.

Your latest god is busted as the vicious, vindictive, corrupt piece of shit he is. Cry us a river.

With the work that needs to be done in New Jersey, we are trying to understand the need to dredge up this phony scandal.

What difference does it make?

Nothing phony about it, which is why you are sucking Christie's cock so hard, trying to save him.

 

Good luck with that.

Ugh...what's with the homophobic references? First, the phony scandal and then gay bashing with the slurs and such.

 

I, myself, am not gay but do try and be more sensitive to the LBGT community, won't you?

What on earth is "homophobic" about that? Oh right -you don't even know what you're talking about, you just know you should bleat that at random.

Nothing phony about it, no gay bashing, and no slur. Do you EVER stop whining and lying about being victimized so you can sob about being mistreated?

 

My guess is no.
