Remember when the media was all gaga for Chris Christie? We saw glowing stories after his reelection about his straight-shooting demeanor. Happy cable talkers panted about the New Jersey guv’s growing chances in 2016. He even made the cover of Time Magazine!
So long, love affair. Enter #Bridgegate, where members of his staff allegedly tried to make Fort Lee’s mayor “pay” for not supporting Christie’s reelection. It seems a plan was hatched to shut down lanes of the George Washington Bridge, backing up traffic in Fort Lee, hampering EMTs, and causing kids to be late for school. The evidence of foul play is in emails between staff members. Christie denies knowing anything about it.
