Christie ‘Outraged’ By ‘Unacceptable’ Email Exchanges Over GWB Lane Closures

TRENTON, N.J.(CBSNewYork/AP)— New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie responded Wednesday afternoon to email exchanges made public earlier in the day linking a top aide to the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal that has been under investigation.

“What I’ve seen today for the first time is unacceptable. I am outraged and deeply saddened to learn that not only was I misled by a member of my staff, but this completely inappropriate and unsanctioned conduct was made without my knowledge. One thing is clear: this type of behavior is unacceptable and I will not tolerate it because the people of New Jersey deserve better. This behavior is not representative of me or my Administration in any way, and people will be held responsible for their actions,” the governor said in a statement.

Hearings on the issue begin Thursday, a day after the emails were released.

As CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider reported, Christie had said previously that no one in his office or his campaign knew about the lane closures back in September.

But the email and text messages between Christie’s deputy chief of staff and the governor’s appointees to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey show a seemingly deliberate effort to create traffic gridlock by shutting Fort Lee’s access to the George Washington Bridge after its mayor refused to endorse Christie for re-election.

Just wait until the redacted portions of those emails are published and it is revealed that Fatboy, not his minions, actually ordered the lane closures.

Game over.

Let's just NOTE for the record that Rachel Maddow/MSNBC has been all over this story for MONTHS and Faux News has still been downplaying the story as recently as last night...ZERO mention of it on O'Reilly or Hannity yesterday....

I watched quite a bit of that news conference today. I must say, he did sound very apologetic and sincere.

But really...

The folks in Jersey are being expected to believe that Fatboy noticed the traffic jams going on for four days, asked what was going on on the first day, and then he simply accepted the explanation from his staffers that it was a "traffic study", and returned to eating doughnuts???

Hmmmm.

I think this all but ends his Presidential chances.

The next blip on the radar screen is Paul "Amnesty" Ryan. He's almost certain to pick up the establishment nod now.

Wellll-DUH!!! It's Faux News!!!
==========
CNN: Fox's Minimal Coverage Of Christie Scandal May Have Political Motivations

Blog ››› 7 hours and 11 minutes ago ››› ELLIE SANDMEYER

CNN media critic Brian Stelter questioned Fox News' minimal coverage of the political retribution scandal surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, suggesting that Fox executive Roger Ailes' role as a "Republican kingmaker" and his support of a Christie presidential campaign may be a reason the network initially ignored the breaking story.

On January 8, news broke that Christie's administration may have deliberately created gridlock in Fort Lee, NJ by ordering the closure of several lanes of the George Washington Bridge as retribution for the town mayor's refusal to endorse Christie's gubernatorial re-election bid. Christie has publicly denied the swirling allegations of his involvement for months, but newly released emails show his deputy chief of staff seemingly requesting the lane closures.

As Media Matters reported, both CNN and MSNBC quickly reported on the new revelation -- but it took Fox News nearly six hours from the time the story broke to mention it on air.

The next day, CNN's New Day highlighted Fox's minimal discussion of the story, and senior media correspondent and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter wondered if political motivations were to blame. Stelter pointed to Fox News chairman Roger Ailes' reputation as a "Republican kingmaker" and noted that Ailes "has in the past tried to enlist Chris Christie to run for president" and "has been said to be a big fan of Chris Christie."

Once again, notice how conservatives will call out Republicans when they've obviously been caught in wrongdoing...we did it with Nixon, too.
But leftists holding Democrats responsible for anything? Never.
