Pat Dollard.com ^ | Pat Dollard

Posted on 01/08/2014 4:29:07 PM PST by icwhatudo

Emergency responders were delayed in attending to four medical situations – including one in which a 91-year-old woman lay unconscious – due to traffic gridlock caused by unannounced closures of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge, according to the head of the borough’s EMS department.

The woman later died, borough records show.

In at least two of those instances, response time doubled, noted EMS coordinator Paul Favia, who documented those cases in a Sept. 10 letter to Mayor Mark Sokolich, which The Record obtained.

I read that on Drudge. This harpoons his chances!

Karma, that's what he gets for viciously attacking conservatives. Calling us every name under the sun.

Once again FReepers called BS on this guy a long time ago!

The longer we let him stay in the party, the more we’ll own his corruption.

Time to kick him out. Shouldn’t be hard.

Actually, Dullard just stole it and now wants hits for it.

“killed by Chris Christie” seems to be a tad too much hyperbole

Juvenile and stupid. Clinton and Obama have set a very low standard but the people expect the Republicans to be the adults.

WELL.. not quite. See how traffic is redirected to provide hits (payment) to someone who wants to show stolen material:

I did not realize the info was on Drudge, had only seen it at the dollard site which I saw via a twitter mention.

Now it seems this thread has been pulled and reinstated at least twice now.

Just trying to get info out there-I don’t care who gets the clicks. If I posted it the wrong way, please enlighten this poor noob.

This is fat Christie’s Bengazi!
At least one American has died because of his vindictive tantrum.
Why hasn’t the staffer been fired?

The traffic jam was clearly the result of a video.
What difference does it make now.
etc.

Christi and his team were 1) stupid to do this, and 2) even stupider to leave a paper trail. (And, as always, he was petty and vindictive.)

Really? How juvenile. Are we blaming Republicans now for traffic jams but giving Democrats a pass?

It’s not juvenile to blame somebody for something they’ve actually been caught doing.

Well, except that there is no evidence this was actually a stunt, much less a stunt BY Christie.

Was there really no reason for the closures? Were they not announced for a purpose? Was that purpose fulfilled?

We know there was an e-mail expressing pleasure at the inconvenience, but no evidence that the closures were ordered to cause that inconvenience.

I certainly hope that you’re right. CC is not who I want as our next President.

We’re a long way from 2016 and lots of stuff will come out about whomever decides to run for President. But IMO...we know enough right now about CC to know he would not be a good President.

Actually, it would seem the lane closures were not announced and the Port Authority in NJ was not explaining why the lanes were closed at the time of closing.

But all that aside...the problem facing CC is that CC has now implied, via his email announcement, that the bridge closure was done by one of his aides as retaliation. CC is indicating that he was not involved and is so sad that one of his trusted aides would do this.

The whole incident is just plain stupidity. CC was always going to win the election. Why the hey they (CC’s team) would even care about some D mayor is beyond me. And to cause traffic jams that delayed citizens and EMS...dangerous and stupid. Don’t see how it’s illegal though.

My only interest in the story is that I hope this keeps CC from becoming the anointed one to be the R candidate in 2016.

Good find. I read it- need’s an insider’s critique to explain it to an outsider like me.

CC is indicating that he was not involved and is so sad that one of his trusted aides would do this.

Which calls his judgment into question. He trusted this aide, who apparently has a penchant for using government power to inflict pain on taxpayers. This aide clearly belongs in the Obama administration, blocking views to Mt. Rushmore and barring veterans from war memorials.

Could this be the hole that rips the "Christie 2016" blimp, sending it plummeting to the ground?
