Democrats Put Out Video On Christie’s “Bridgegate” - My9 New Jersey

Democrats Put Out Video On Christie’s “Bridgegate”

Posted: Updated:
Fort Lee, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Back in September, the inexplicable lane closures in Fort Lee started out as nothing but a few Democrats in New Jersey ruffling their feathers saying that Governor Christie and his appointees were behind the closures and it was an act of political retribution. They saw it as Christie’s way of getting back at the mayor of Fort Lee for not endorsing him for governor.

Now this scandal is being referred to by some as “Bridgegate” and it’s become a cause for democrats around the nation.

Friday morning the Democratic National Committee dropped a video titled “Chris Christie’s Bridge Scandal Explained”. The video makes the case that Christie is not the straight-shooter he claims to be, but rather a dangerous political bully.

Some say this may be a major strike by the national Democrats to bash the Republican frontrunner for the White House bid in 2016.

With Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie neck in neck in the polls for 2016, major pieces of the Democratic machine are falling into place to support the former Secretary of State and at the same time, the resolution of “Bridgegate”. Could it be that a story that was originally not deemed newsworthy by a pack of Jersey journalists could actually be something we’re talking about through the 2016 election?

The video ends by asking if New Jerseyeans deserve answers. That’s a question that’s been asked by local politicians like Senator Loretta Weinberg since day-one. She says Christie's created an environment of fear and bullying in NJ politics.

“The Governor’s really good at what he does when he does his PR gambit, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. By and large I’m happy the people who seemed most directly involved will no longer be in positions of power at the Port Authority and I am hoping that with this window into government, by scaring people, that people will think twice before they do anything like this in the future,” Weinberg said.
