Bridge-gate

Gov. Chris Christie

Who would’ve thought that several traffic jams would lead to a political scandal? I didn’t. But closing roads would sure enough cast light in what would be 2014’s first popular political issue.

What happened was two lanes on Fort Lee that lead to the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan closed down by Port Authority in New York and New Jersey. For days, massive traffic jams halted everything in that area. The question everyone’s been asking is why?

This could be a political beef. Democrats believed that it was payback for the election of Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich. The source behind the closings was Deputy Chief of Staff member, Bridget Anne Kelly, who worked for New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie. It was carried out by Port Authority’s Christie appointees David Wildstein and Bill Baroni.

Kelly got fired, and Wildstein and Baroni resigned when the whole mess revealed itself in thousands of documents, angry ones. And the scandal continues to dig a deeper grave for the governor’s Presidential possbility with each new discovery and theory.

Christie maintains his innocence, claiming that he was ignorant of the kind of people in his staff. Yet, some people beg to differ. They think Christie knew exactly what went down, and he’s just playing dumb. Either way, this could seriously screw up his political career.

Political scandals break politicians. But some people still have hopes for the embattled governor. Will he come out on top above this fiasco, or is this the beginning of the end?

  1. I told you Black people should leave the Democratic Party and stop joining political parties that don’t care about us or our well being. Both Republican and Democratic parties are bad and dividing our country.

    BTW Christie should have known about this incident, who appointed David Wildstein and Bill Baroni for crying out loud!

  2. Hey, he doesn’t compare to the crack smoking, liquor swilling turd who is the mayor of Toronto. He is ‘boring’ in fact. This blasted goof of a mayor is running again! He seems oblivious!

  3. @Herenith True indeed, as much fun as I have when I visit Canada on occasion, No one seems to be livin’ it uP (at least in Toronto) as the ” professional mayor” of your town apparently has! LmaOoo As for Mr. “Chris-py Crème Donut”, his inadequacy as an elected official is just as much of a joke (no matter how you slice it)!!! 😀

    1. Mz. Nikita, our pleasures is more esoteric such as dog sledding, polar bear watching and drinking copious amounts of beer! However, we do this behind closed doors! Anywho, this goof of a Mayor not only smokes crack, ingest large amounts of liquor, but he also consorts with gangsters and other criminal types. His henchman was recently arrested for extortion. The bottom line is that you cannot make this shit up, hence the comedy or the situation. As for Chris-py Creme? Perhaps you can hook me up via this incompetent fool with some of these delicious donuts and a coffee! Chicago, time for another trip there!!

  4. @ Brotha Wolf: I knew it was something like a thug or a gangster from Goodfellas. I like the bouncer from the strip club character. lol.

  5. @Brothawolf “retired bouncer from a strip club” Why he gotta be Retired, though? RofL @Herneith, I’ll see your “Crack-smokin’-balloon-boy-of-a-mayor”, and raise you two hot, warm Chris-py Cremes (plus a java of your choice) if his henchmen promises to rough my ex up a little! One question, would you prefer the Original Glaze or the Chocolate Cheesecake Donut? LOL
