I wouldn't be surprised if he does a few months in the slammer.

Here is Christie's response.

Quote:
Christie's office said he will appeal and described the citizen as a "serial complainant and political activist with a history of abusing the system."
So a serial complainer and activist files a complaint and of course since he is a Republican he must be guilty.

Hum wasn't it an assistant who once was in his office that opened up while on the stand at her trial?

If so he had better come up with a better lie.

Humm this is becoming a she says while he said kind of thing for the jury to make sense of.

As former deputy chief of Christie's staff Bridget Kelly and former bridge official
Bill Baroni are on trial.

And another former bridge official David Wildstein, who has plead guilty and agreed to testified against both of them over the get even for not backing Christie reelection by Ft. Lee's then Democratic Mayor. to have the G. Washington Bridge lanes reduced to slow traffic in and out of Ft. Lee.

So now both Kelly & Baroni say that any planned traffic slow down was the doing of David Wildstein..

Some how last names seem to bear out the weaknesses of so,e people.

Well you can read about this juicy who did what at:

Update, the trial is over for the 2 former Governor Christie aids who were found guility on all counts.

Now Christie wasn't charged but I believe the turn coat who rated the entire operation out...

He said, "the governor had knowledge of it while the lanes were closed." So be it, I believe him..

Need I say it again for you left wingers who have problems with me not liking either party or the get rich and gain more power members.? Bunch of "O's"

Default 2 Ex-Christie Allies Are Convicted in George Washington Bridge Case

2 Ex-Christie Allies Are Convicted in George Washington Bridge Case
Quote:
NEWARK ó A federal jury convicted two former aides to Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey on Friday over a bizarre scheme to close access lanes to the George Washington Bridge as punishment against a mayor who declined to endorse the governorís re-election.

The two defendants, Bridget Anne Kelly and Bill Baroni, were each charged with seven counts of conspiracy and wire fraud, including misusing the resources of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the bridge, and violating the rights of the citizens of Fort Lee, N.J., to travel without government restriction when the closings gridlocked their town over five days in September 2013.
Quote:
Though Ms. Kelly and Mr. Baroni were the only ones to be tried as a result of the scandal, the trial suggested that Mr. Christie, who has maintained that he knew nothing about the scheme until after it had ended, was deeply involved. A top ally and key prosecution witness testified that Mr. Christie, a Republican, was told of the lane closings as they were occurring, and Ms. Kelly said she discussed the shutdown with the governor before it happened.

The scandal not only crippled Mr. Christieís presidential candidacy this year, but also tarnished his reputation at a time when he has been a key player in Donald J. Trumpís presidential campaign, named to lead his White House transition team and serving as a political surrogate. Mr. Christie is scheduled to campaign for Mr. Trump this weekend in New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, two key battleground states, ahead of the election on Tuesday.
MAYBE WITH THE NEW CULTURE HE AND HILL CAN BE CELLIES

I kind of covered the whole thing and placed it in the "Local Politics" topic area.

At: http://www.politicalwrinkles.com/loc...tml#post848485

I didn't get one reply...... I guess Christie isn't news... And I did believe

Christie was aware of the events during Bridge-Gate...
