How bout that Presidential temperament:

“Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee,” Bridget Anne Kelly, one of three deputies on Christie’s senior staff, wrote to David Wildstein, a top Christie executive at the Port Authority, on Aug. 13, about three weeks before the closures. Wildstein, the official who ordered the closures and who resigned last month amid the escalating scandal, wrote back: “Got it.”

One Response to Governor Soprano’s Office Ordered the Fort Lee Bridge Lane Closure

  1. Tsuyoshi says:

    Really strange, because closing down a lane on that bridge affects much more than just Fort Lee, which is a very small city. I would imagine 99% of the people who use the bridge have nothing to do with Fort Lee. It would be similar to closing down the Whitman bridge to hurt the mayor of Gloucester City.

    Similar in another way, too: the bridge is operated by a bistate authority. Was Cuomo asleep when this happened? Could Christie shut down the Whitman bridge without any input from Corbett?
