Second Bridge Inquiry Leads to Christie

Source: Huff Post/ New York Times

Investigations into the Christie administration and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have zeroed in on possible securities law violations stemming from a $1.8 billion road repair agreement in 2011, according to people briefed on the matter.

While the inquiries were prompted by the apparently politically motivated lane closings at the George Washington Bridge last year, these investigations center on another crossing: the Pulaski Skyway, the crumbling elevated roadway connecting Newark and Jersey City. They are being conducted by the Manhattan district attorney and the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The inquiries into securities law violations focus on a period of 2010 and 2011 when Gov. Chris Christie’s administration pressed the Port Authority to pay for extensive repairs to the Skyway and related road projects, diverting money that was to be used on a new Hudson River rail tunnel that Mr. Christie canceled in October 2010.

Again and again, Port Authority lawyers warned against the move: The Pulaski Skyway, they noted, is owned and operated by the state, putting it outside the agency’s purview, according to dozens of memos and emails reviewed by investigators and obtained by The New York Times.

2. Sic transit gloria mundi.

Only a few years ago, when Mika and Joe both were practically orgasming over Christie.

Good times.

Speaking of time, remember the speech Christie made, announcing he would not be running in 2012, even though Republicans were panting to have him do that? He said emphatically, "This is not my time."

I think he's clean out of time.

7. Christie cancelled the new tunnel construction

because he wanted to distribute the funds to firms that would make "campaign contributions" to off shore money laundries. In the end, the state of New Jersey is damaged by his unclean hands.
