7. Stealing A Line From Faux News....

Is this the start of the death spiral? Check out this editorial from the Star Ledger released this evening:

Christie's GW Bridge scandal moves closer: Editorial

The George Washington Bridge scandal just moved a big step closer to Gov. Chris Christie with the revelation that his campaign manager knew about the lane closures while they were underway.

Bill Stepien, who was fired by the governor for reasons that remain a mystery, was twice sent a copy of a protest letter from Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich on Sept. 12, during the week the access lanes were closed.

The two emails came from David Wildstein and Bill Baroni, Christieís top appointees at the Port Authority, both of whom have since stepped down in disgrace.

Stepienís response to the emails is telling. He does not ask why the lanes were closed in the first place, or why the mayor charged that it was done as an act of political revenge. He asks nothing about the urgent public safety issues the mayor described in his letter. He just says thanks.

The only plausible reason Stepien would not ask those obvious questions is that he already knew the answers. It seems clear that he had already discussed the lane closures before receiving these emails.

they finish it up with this kicker:

Whatís certain is that Stepien knew about this in real time. The big question now is whether he discussed it with the governor, and if so, when. Stay tuned.


Stay tuned indeed! (and isn't it Kirstie Alley?)
