Fort Lee woman died as GWB closures delayed medical help, report says (Chris Christie scandal)
Star Ledger ^ | 1/8/14 | Brent Johnson

Posted on 01/08/2014 5:00:47 PM PST by jimbo123

The controversial lane closures at the George Washington Bridge last September delayed emergency responders from attending to at least four medical situations in Fort Lee — including helping a 91-year-old woman who lay unconscious and later died, according to a report by The Record.

Democrats have long accused Republican Gov. Chris Christie of ordering the lane closures as political retribution for Fort Lee's Democratic mayor refusing to endorse his re-election bid last year. Today, newly unveiled e-mails show that one of Christie's top aides knew about the closures in advance. The governor himself has denied being involved and today issued a statement admonishing the aide.

Well I’m sorry for her and all those others impacted by this debacle but there is a silver lining.

Christie is probably out of the 2016 election for POTUS.

I have zero doubt that he was unaware. I also have zero doubt a portion of the right will come to his defense. Perhaps not right now, but the excuses WILL begin once the immediate fervor settles down.

And once again ‘lesser evil’ will be trotted out over fear of Clinton.

I cannot stand RINO Christie, but, where are the liberal socialist demanding an investigation into the Obumbum Administration using the IRS to attack the Tea Party Americans who dared to file applications for nonprofit status for the 2013 elections?

The hypocrisy of the liberal socialist continues. In just another note for discussion, I am not a conspiracy theorist, but, I smell the NSA in this timed scandal, maybe leaking specific emails of the Christie administration to the liberal socialist NYT?

This is what all Americans are in for, the socialist attacking any candidate from the Tea Party while giving a pass to their socialist like Hitlery who is directly responsible for the terrorist attack on American sovereign soil (Embassy) and killing of four (4) Americans!

Be prepared!

To clarify, I believe he knew damn well. Whether he ordered it, I dunno. But nothing happens in Jersey without orders from on high.

What a lying, vindictive creep (by all appearances) is Mister Christie.

I worry when the Dems agree w me, but this time? Ummm... okay.

Dear Mister Christie:

Congratulations on becoming "TRICKY CHRIS"!

Toodles.

Having to cross that damn bridge almost on a daily basis many yrs ago, I can say it doesn't take a PhD in civil engineering to know the approach roads to the GWB are woefully inadequate. Like most of the parkways and expressways in and around NYC the GWB, from the day it opened in 1932 was "complete and obsolete". There had better be a *bleeping* good reason for lane closures in that area. As for that poor 91-yr-old woman, may she RIP, she may do to Krispy Creme's presidential aspirations what MaryJo Kopechne did to Teddy the swimmer's.

Hense the reason for the entire existence of the TEA Party.
Not interested in hearing all the chatter about how bad the “other guys” are.

Ballot box or bullet box.

Christie can’t control himself, (munch, munch, gorge, snuffle, gulp, burp) therefore he has no business in control of anything.

At least this and the stuff that will be made public because of this will derail his presidential train. Heretofore he seemed to be the media’s anointed Republican Candidate. The RNC will have to find another leftist who doesn’t want the job but craves the honor of Nomination.

NSA will be a large factor in the 2014 and 2016 elections.We may never know the specifics in many cases as the NSA may just let material be shown to the target with the implied or explicit threat of it getting released.

Not a Christie fan, but what about all the things Obama spitefully closed during the shutdown that had never been closed during the 17 prior shutdowns. How many reporters are out searching for deaths to blame on Obama’s actions? For that matter, how many have died so far from Obama canceling or reducing their health insurance?
