Another Christie Friend Witnessed Traffic Surge

MSNBC: "A Port Authority police officer with personal ties to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was at the George Washington Bridge when access lanes were closed last September and personally drove David Wildstein, the Christie appointee who supervised the closings, on a tour of the area as traffic brought it to a standstill."

"Documents submitted to a New Jersey legislative committee by Wildstein also show that the officer, Lieutenant Thomas 'Chip' Michaels, appears to have sent periodic text messages to Wildstein updating him on the effects of the lane closures and their crippling impact on the town of Fort Lee. In one message, on the first day of the lane closures, Michaels told Wildstein he might have an idea to 'make this better.' It is not clear what he meant."
