Response to Beach Rat (Original post)

4. And yet another from the NY Times

Hoping to run up an impressive margin of victory in November, Mr. Christie’s campaign aggressively targeted the endorsements of Democratic mayors, religious leaders and other groups. A prevailing theory about the lane closings is that they were intended to punish the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee, Mark Sokolich, who did not endorse Mr. Christie.

The documents include no definitive answer as to why the lanes were closed, or why Mr. Christie’s allies were angry at Mr. Sokolich. But they do help to clarify the roles of various Christie aides now entangled in the scandal, and their attempts to cover up the traffic ruse.
