“A ‘hasty and ill-advised decision’, says Port Authority chief”


The New Jersey Legislature has released more than 2,000 pages of documents related to the controversial closure of the George Washington Bridge .

They were made public two days after damning e-mails surfaced suggesting top aides to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were involved– allegedly to punish  Fort Lee’s Democratic mayor.

Below are some of the striking details from the document dump. They were entered into public record during a New Jersey Assembly Transportation Committee hearing, in which David Wildstein, a Christie-appointed executive at the Port Authority (which controls the bridge) repeatedly pled the Fifth Amendment. He has since resigned.
