U.S. Attorney To Investigate Christie Bridge Scandal

The New York Times reports that “the United States attorney for New Jersey, Paul J. Fishman, [has] opened an inquiry” into allegations that aides to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie created a traffic snarl on the George Washington Bridge as an act of political retribution.

“The matter was referred to the [U.S. attorney's] office by the inspector general for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the bridge.”

    Now, Christie has a long bridge to nowhere.

    Like it or not, Christie will easily survive this unless communications can be produced that show he was directly involved. For now, I’ll take him at his word. By the time the presidential primaries heat up, this will be a footnote, although it will be dragged up again and again, just like the Benghazi. It’s damaging, but it’s not fatal.
