THE RECORD


Hours after unannounced lane closures went into effect at the George Washington Bridge on a Monday morning in September, Governor Christie’s top two executives at the Port Authority received an email indicating that the resulting traffic jams were posing problems that carried potential life-and-death consequences.

1. This is the heart of the matter

I'm going to fuck anyone who gets in my way, or disagrees with me, or even refuses to kiss my ring.

If first responders have difficulty handling emergency situations as a result, even at the risk of people dying, I don't give a shit.

3. If there was loss of life or major loss of property from emergency vehicles being blocked

This could escalate quickly into a huge scandal.

5. Interesting Admission/Mistake

He also disputed the suggestion, made by Baroni and Christie, that the local access lanes were exclusively for Fort Lee residents.

“A lot of people other than Fort Lee residents use those access lanes,” he said. He declined to say what municipality he lives in, other than to say it is in Bergen County, north of Fort Lee.


Baroni & Christie think that the fact that the lanes only served Fort Lee residents is a sign that this was all really not that big of a deal. In reality, it shows that this was designed to affect only Fort Lee residents. Clearly to target and punish the mayor of Fort Lee by causing him political pain.

This is how Christie operates. He will punish you by causing pain to people who will blame you first. By the time the dust settles, usually it ends with you suffering and Christie laughing. Property taxes, state aid, public pensions, his M/O is the same.
