I just dropped my wife off at the GWB to get to work in the City, and there are all sorts of TV vans from CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC and local stations reporting.
Christie is a bully, and the chickens have come home to roost, and as Soflo mentioned, his future ambitions are toast. Knowing Christie he is going to get other people to take the fall in Bridgegate.
Closing the GWB at rush hour is just crazy! Too conduct a "traffic study" on a 14 lane bridge (7 lanes in each direction) at rush hour is STUPID! Interstate 95, Routes 1 &9, Route 4, the Palisades Interstate Parkway, Route 46 along with local roads transports traffic in Northern New Jersey to NYC and New England. The NY legislature has subpoenaed a former Port Authority executive appointed by Christie at noon today. Ironically Christie has scheduled a press conference at 11:00 now. Christie is in trouble, and the Tea Party and Hillary are loving it.
