Skip to comments.Christie Ally Resigns In Wake of George Washington Bridge Controversy [last month]
Posted on 01/13/2014 6:11:18 PM PST by PieterCasparzen
Gov. Chris Christie announced the resignation Friday of Bill Baroni, his top executive appointee at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Mr. Baroni is the second of Mr. Christies political allies to resign from the Port Authority over the bridge matter. David Wildstein, a subordinate to Mr. Baroni and longtime associate of Mr. Christie who ordered the lane closures and that they be kept secret from local and New York officials, resigned last week.
Mr. Christie suggested that Mr. Baronis resignation was not connected to the bridge controversy. Senator Baroni offered his resignation and I accepted it, he said at a news conference Friday. But this was nothing I hadnt planned already.
Executive Director Patrick Foye, Mr. Baronis counterpart, alerted his top communications aide that he intended to get word out about the reopening of the bridge lanes on the morning of Sept. 13. The lane closures had occurred without the consent of Mr. Foye, the top executive appointee of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who had not been advised of them, or the ensuing traffic jams they caused.
His email prompted a quick response from Mr. Baroni.
Pat we need to discuss prior to any communications, Mr. Baroni wrote to Mr. Foye and Lisa MacSpadden, Mr. Foyes spokeswoman.
Bill we are going to fix this fiasco, Mr. Foye wrote back.
I am on way to office to discuss, Mr. Baroni typed back from his iPhone. There can be no public discourse.

This was kept very quiet until last week.
I never knew she was involved...
Before she was guilty.
EVERYONE involved should be fired
They had to know they were closing the bridge lanes for NOTHING
That look could definitely stop some traffic.
Jeez, I show up all set to post a picture of a faded actress, and find I’m about 7th in line. Guess I won’t bother.
Including the stay puft marshmallow man
Amazing how many of us warped FReepers had the same idea from the headline

"Sit down, Chris and order off the regular menu."
LOL! My exact thoughts.
LOL. oh, what can you do. Pollyticianwood.
Who’s the least scariest to have signing executive orders - Chrissy ? Obama ? Hillary ? Kirstie ?
See what happens when you try to be nice? I hesitated about 8 seconds on whether to show the guilty or not guilty version.
I kind of thought about it too
I was also thinking of posting the same pic to the “breastfeeding peer counselors” thread
we probably all need some kind of help
