Bridge Scandal Dogs Christie

Newark Star Ledger: "No one has publicly accused Christie of ordering two of his top appointees at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to close lanes to the world's busiest bridge to get back at a Democratic mayor who wouldn't endorse his re-election bid. But questions about the incident have fueled a scandal that even Christie's masterful team of brand managers can't make go away."

First Read: "And if the Christie administration didn't close the lanes for political reasons, it hasn't given a really good reason why it closed them. In addition, if politics had nothing to do with these decisions, then why did he accept the resignations of his Port Authority appointees? If there is nothing to see here then these two officials shouldn't have lost their jobs, right?"
