Christie's Traffic Jam on the George Washington Bridge.

Now that I work in Jersey I have to take the George Washington Bridge Daily. Something curious happened last summer. There were lane closures but no one was working on the bridge. Ever. And at all. It was infuriating and caused LOTS of traffic.

Well..this year I found out it was the result of a "study". But it was a study that no one owned or announced. And it was a study with no results. And lately? It's not a study. And the plot has been thickening..

There’s been a simmering controversy in New Jersey, which initially appeared a little too outlandish to take seriously. But late Friday afternoon, the story took an interesting turn.


A Port Authority official with close ties to Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey is resigning after state lawmakers questioned whether lane closings on the George Washington Bridge that led to extensive traffic backups in September were politically motivated.



The official, David Wildstein, will resign as the director of interstate capital projects at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Jan. 1, according to a letter he wrote to the agency’s deputy executive director, Bill Baroni. The resignation was first reported by The Record newspaper, of northern New Jersey.

If this is the biggest controversy you minions have,...... its looking good for our side.

Oh, yeah, I remember Barry and Biden and other Dims touting all those shovel ready jobs that were going to juice the economy and whatnot. And, who can forget Barry & Co. yucking it up later over the fact that they weren't so shovel ready after all. What a hoot that was, huh?

It happened in August.

I'd pass by the cones in the morning..no work.

I'd see them at night. No work.

I was like, WTF is going on?

Eyah.

That was another huge Obama mistake, providing cover for Republican governors.

You seem to forget that the money was given as grants and the states could decide how that money was used.

Rubes like Jindal, who went around his state with big checks..after saying he'd "never" take them, used the money to keep cops, firemen and teachers on the payroll along with his big tax cuts.

THAT'S what Obama should have said, instead of the Shovel Ready not Ready nonsense.

If that was the case, we'd be reading about a bridge collapse.

The story may have wheels. A phone call from a top aid to the Governor closed the bridge lanes. He has resigned and the whole situation is getting alot of attention. The Port Authority is a joint NJ/NY operation. People want to know how an individual aid to a Governor of one state can cause so much trouble and problems with a phone call. They have yet to get a valid reason for the lane closures. One was given, an alleged traffic study, but that has turned out to be a lie, making the situation worse for the aid and the Governor.

Oh dear, this is serious stuff!! I am sure Christie is so upset about this kerfuffle that he's not even eating!
