Wally Edge Sheds Light on Christie Scandal

The New York Times looks at the blogging life of the man at the center of the Bridgegate scandal.

"As Wally Edge, political blogger, David Wildstein was so anonymous that when he sold his company, the buyer did not know his real name... His sources -- including the United States attorney at the time, Chris Christie -- plied him with tips and poured out their souls in emails and instant message conversations at all hours, knowing little more about him than an email address: politicsnj@aol.com."

"He loved stories about politicians caught in a lie, and nursed grudges with sources who had lied to him. And he had a rule: do not attack political operatives for doing stupid things, because they do what they do for their bosses, the politicians."
