Thousands Of Bridgegate Documents Released - My9 New Jersey

Thousands Of Bridgegate Documents Released

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Late last week more documentation regarding bridgegate was released which shows thousands of pages of paperwork relating to the whole bridgegate scandal. Among them is a six-page traffic study draft, which brings up more questions about whether or not the original excuse for the closures did in fact hold true.

NJ.com Senior Political Reporter Darryl Isherwood conducted a poll asking their readers whether or not Christie should resign from office if he did in fact know about the lane closures.

“It was fairly overwhelming that people were saying yes. I mean, obviously those polls aren’t scientific, but I’m looking at the most current numbers and its 76% to 23% say yes he should resign if he knew,” he said.

While many people feel he should step-down if he was aware of the closures, this whole debacle hasn’t really hurt the governor in terms of his popularity with the New Jersey people. “His approval rating is still at 55% of a favorable opinion of Christie,” Isherwood confirmed.

Could this whole bridgegate situation end up being an example of “what doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger” for Governor Christie?
