BREAKING: Christie Knew About Lane Closures on Bridge

A former appointee of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is alleging that the Republican knew about the politically motivated lane closures on the George Washington Bridge, according to The New York Times.

A letter by the attorney for David Wildstein, who was Christie's appointee on the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, says the governor knew about the lane closures, which are at the heart of a political scandal threatening the governor's political future.

The letter by Alan Zegas describes "the Christie administration order" and said "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."

"Mr. Wildstein contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some," the letter says.
