Are Emails the Smoking Gun That Reveal Chris Christie’s Bridge of Revenge?

This ends the Christie 2016 campaign.
Check it out:

Newly published emails reportedly suggest New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s office was involved in controversial lane closures in a north Jersey town last fall, giving fresh ammunition to Democrats who claim the closures were political retribution against the local mayor.

Though he repeatedly has denied involvement, Christie has faced criticism for months over the bizarre incident in September, when lanes at the George Washington Bridge from Fort Lee, N.J., were closed for four days. He faced accusations that the lanes were blocked in retaliation over Mayor Mark Sokolich’s refusal to endorse him for re-election last November.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that emails indeed show his deputy chief of staff, Bridget Anne Kelly, suggested closures to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey two weeks before the incident.

“Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee,” she wrote to Christie confidant David Wildstein, according to the Times. At the time, Wildstein was on the Port Authority; he has since resigned.
