    Is this simply an instance where Christie's coterie of friends and lackeys thought they would show Dems that they shouldn't mess with Chris or was Christie himself the instigator? It is doubtful we will ever know, two of those involved have already "fallen upon their swords" - there will be others but will any of them tell the tale in court?
    We will likely never know, someone will fall on the sword. But dollars to donuts that he led the charge himself. He's just a fatass Jersey politician. Not even competently corrupt like Chicago politicians.

    Ok. I admit your argument is more valid than mine.

    Um, complaining about someone deliberately causing a traffic jam is topical to this thread. In case you didn't realize.

    How does this show Dems anything? Are they the only people that use the bridge?

    did you hear that?

    it's the sound of the GOP losing the 2016 election

    christie was the party's only legitimate hope

    and now he's dead ... at least his presidential candidacy

    ... The emails contradict repeated statements by Christie that neither his staff nor anyone from his campaign was involved with the lane closures.

    The messages also lay bare Christie's staff's gleeful anticipation of Fort Lee's traffic debacle. On the day of the lane closures and in the aftermath, Christie's top aids privately traded jabs at Fort Lee's mayor and mocked the town's residents as they struggled to deal with the traffic.

    What are the highlights? "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee," Bridget Anne Kelly, a top Christie aide, wrote in an email to Wildstein. "Got it," Wildstein replied.

    One text message sent to Wildstein on the day of the lane closures referenced mass school bus delays. "Is it wrong that I'm smiling?" the message read.

    "No," Wildstein wrote.

    "I feel badly about the kids. I guess," the person, who is unidentified, texted back.

    Wildstein replied, "They are the children of Buono voters." Barbara Buono was the Democratic challenger to Christie who lost handily to the governor last November.

    Numerous messages mock Fort Lee's mayor as he scrambled to learn the reason behind the closures from the Port Authority and spoke publicly about the closures in the aftermath. In one email sent the day of the closures, Wildstein assures Kelly that the Port Authority was responding to Sokolich with "Radio silence."

    As Sokolich began speaking to press after the closures, Bill Sepien, Christie's campaign manager wrote, "The mayor is an idiot."

    "It will be a tough November for this little Serbian," Wildstein wrote to Sepien, apparently referencing Sokolich's nationality. Elsewhere in the documents, Bill Baroni, the deputy executive director of the Port Authority, refers to Sokolich as "Serbian." Sokolich is Croatian.

    Gotta love it!

    Liberals and socialists think an Ambassador and four security personnel being left in Benghazi to die by Hillary Clinton and President Obama is no big deal, but closing a lane on a bridge is grounds for the death penalty.

    Has anyone actually studied what goes on between the ears of the average leftist?

    .... what? Saying someone should be charged with terrorism for causing a traffic jam is failing to complain about someone causing a traffic jam? I'm not sure I get your meaning.
