Christie's Appointee Claims Christie Had Advance Knowledge of Bridge Closing
That would be none other than David Wildstein, (pictured on your left, with the glasses)a high school friend of the governor whom he appointed to head the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the George Washington bridge, a major traffic artery between New Jersey and New York that was apparently closed deliberately for 4 hours during rush hour as political revenge on Fort Lee’s Democratic mayor, Mark Sokolich for not endorsing Christie in his re-election run for governor last year. At least one woman died as a result.
Wildstein was fired by Christie, after a ridiculous press conference that boiled down to "Hey I didn't know nuthin'." He claimed that he hardly ever even spoke to David Wildstein, someone he's been intimate friends with for years.
So Wildstein, angered at being hung out to dry had his attorney Alan Zegas tell the media, according to Pravda-on-the Hudson who broke the story that 'evidence exists' that Christie knew all along what was going on. If that's true, the old question of 'what did he know and when did he know it' just got answered.
This is making big news among the pundit class, but I could care less from the standpoint of Christie's political prospects.He's been a lousy governor fiscally and in terms of social policy as well as an Obama ally, and I have no use for him. I can't imagine why anyone else would, especially anyone who considers themselves a conservative. The blimp has crashed and burned, and Christie has learned what all RINOs learn eventually...Democrats and their shills in the dinosaur media will kiss your posterior endlessly as long as you serve their purposes and attack other Republicans. They will ooh and ah,write flattering articles, give you favorable press and literally fellate you on the air as one of those wonderful 'moderate Republicans'...until you are perceived as a threat. And then they will demonize you and accuse you of everything from cheating on your taxes to luring little children into your ginger bread house and eating them.
Buy the ticket, take the ride.
But for giggles, just compare this treatment with the treatment Hillary or president Obama got over Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS-Gate or any of the other myriad scandals the administration has been involved with.
At this point, it doesn't even matter anymore if Christie knew or didn't know about the bridge closings. It'll still be used to beat him over the head and destroy him, no matter how cozy he got with the President to help him win the 2012 election. And it serves him right.
Somewhere, Mitt Romney is chuckling and shaking his head.
