    Christie, Official Who Arranged Bridge Closures Were Together During Fiasco[W:54]

    Gov. Chris Christie was with the official who arranged the closure of local lanes leading to the George Washington Bridge on Sept. 11, 2013 — the third day of the closures, and well after they had triggered outrage from local officials beset by heavy traffic.It isn’t known what, if anything, Mr. Christie discussed with David Wildstein that day, when the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official was among the delegation of Mr. Christie’s representatives who welcomed him to the site of the World Trade Center for the commemoration of the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks there.
    Mr. Christie’s office didn’t respond to questions about what he and Mr. Wildstein discussed. Mr. Wildstein did not respond to a request for comment.
    Also present with Mr. Christie that day were Bill Baroni, the authority’s deputy executive director, who was helping Mr. Wildstein manage the fallout from the closures among local officials, subpoenaed documents show. Also there was David Samson, the Port Authority chairman and close Christie ally, who has said he didn’t learn of the lane closures and traffic in Fort Lee, N.J., until an email from a New York port official ordered the lane closures reversed. Messrs. Samson and Baroni didn’t respond to requests for comment.
    Mr. Christie addressed Mr. Wildstein in a news conference last week, saying he had not encountered him “in a long time.”
    “I have had no contact with David Wildstein in a long time, a long time, well before the election,” which was held Nov. 5, Mr. Christie said last week. “You know, I could probably count on one hand the number of conversations I’ve had with David since he worked at the Port Authority. I did not interact with David.”

    It looks like Christie's temper got the best of him.

    I don't see how this advances a story

    Okay. I was wrong about Chris Christie. All apologies.

    Since his can of worms has been opened and we have discovered a definite pattern regarding him repetitively abusing of power, I formally withdraw my support for him.

    I hereby remove my "Chris Christie for President 2016," from my signature line.

    But I'm STILL not voting for Hilda. I will go fishing on election day, if it comes down to that.

    Really?

    If you think Chrisite took responsibility then you better say that Obama takes responsibility and isnt incompetent as well.. But we know that will never happen.
