The Bridgegate Smoking Gun?

The Bridgegate Smoking Gun?
BY MURRAY SABRIN
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The great mystery remains about the closing of two Fort Lee lanes to the George Washington Bridge in September 2013, now known as the “‘Bridgegate” caper. We still don’t know who ordered the closing, but we do know that it was not part of a traffic study to determine the impact of reducing the number of lanes to the bridge from the borough.

With all the speculation about what Gov. Christie knew about the lane closings, could there have been a “trigger” that may have caused the governor and/or his staff to retaliate against Fort Lee? In fact, the New York Times article (Jan. 20), ”For Christie and MSNBC, a Messy Divorce Plays Out in Public View,” provides a clue that could be the “smoking gun” explaining why Fort Lee could have been the target of an egregious abuse of power, the closing of two lanes to the George Washington Bridge.
