‘There Can Be No Public Discourse’ on Bridge Traffic, Said Doomed Christie Official

By
TRENTON, NJ - JANUARY 9:   New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie speaks about his knowledge of a traffic study that snarled traffic at the George Washington Bridge during a news conference on January 9, 2014 at the Statehouse in Trenton, New Jersey.  According to reports Christie's Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly is accused of giving a signal to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to close lanes on the George Washington Bridge, allegedly as punishment for the Fort Lee, New Jersey mayor not endorsing the Governor during the  election.

More than 900 pages of documents were made public today in the investigation of Chris Christie's ongoing George Washington Bridge nightmare. Among them is an e-mail from the New Jersey governor's since-resigned Port Authority appointee, Bill Baroni, insisting there be "no public discourse" about the so-called "traffic study." Baroni's New York counterpart Patrick Foye promised, "I will get to the bottom of this abusive decision which violates everything this agency stands for."
