Uh oh…it’s starting to look like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s goose might just be cooked.
The attorney representing David Wildstein, a former official at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, said today that Gov. Chris Christie knew of the closure of lanes from Fort Lee on to the George Washington Bridge when they occurred in September.
The attorney, Alan Zegas, who is representing Wildstein in the scandal, said in a letter to the Port Authority that “evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference” last month.
Zegas also said Wildstein “contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some.”
