Posted on 01/31/2014 12:47:24 PM PST by kristinn
The former Port Authority official who personally oversaw the lane closings on the George Washington Bridge in the scandal now swirling around Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey said on Friday that the governor knew about the lane closings when they were happening, and that he had the evidence to prove it.
In a letter released by his lawyer, the official, David Wildstein, a high school friend of Mr. Christies who was appointed with the governors blessing at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the bridge, described the order to close the lanes as the Christie administrations order and said evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference three weeks ago.
Mr. Wildstein contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some, the letter added.

At this point, what difference does it make?
This is big. Like RomneyCARE for Romney, this will
make him the “SHINE” ... as the next GOP losing candidate.
Mr. Weldstein, are you saying you were only following orders?
One down........... Mr Bush, please stand by
Fat boi is a bully. We all know that.
Ironically, the MSM will be the ones to come to his rescue so he doesn’t lose his status as the next Dole-McCain-Romney republican candidate they all love to have on the ballot.
how many good candidates have there been where "something" just happens to happen or be discovered accidentally of course....
they'll go after Rand or Cruz or Jeb or whoever next, to pave the way for their next god....
stop falling for this time and again people....
The truth doesn’t matter. Their strategy is to keep bringing the bridge thing up until the Republican party bigs drop Christie.
He is a threat to their entrenched power, and can win.
Fodder for the MSM weekend shows.
It doesn't rise to level of using the IRS against your political enemies but it'll have to do.
And...goodbye Mr Christie....
I didn’t think that the issue was Christie’s knowledge of the CLOSINGS. I thought the issue was his knowledge about the fact that these occurred on his office’s orders??
He should have just quit the pres race immediately, he was done with it anyway. Not knowing that in itself disqualifies him
He really shod have said whatever he wanted to at the time of discovery, because that was the moment his pres bid was over (and Romney moved back in).
The jersey people don’t really care about this stuff. They don’t like it but they know and they know what they do t want to know.
What they really don’t know is how that slobbering Bammy’s hug did this guy in for outside jersey aspirations. And it showed how stupid he is for national politics. To e deaf for it, like in this instance
They’ll need a REALLY BIG BUS to get Christie under it..
Who does 'their' refer to?
Revenge porn. This guy lost his job over the scandel.
I bet Christie is hidding the truth in folders with Obama 2012 stickers
If you don’t think Romney started running last week, ... well, you’re in good compny. Not even rush seems to be picking up on that. But Romney’s back in and just when anyone could sense Christie was out
Which was as soon as this story broke
Too bad hr hugged the one.
