Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: December of 2013
Categories: Chris Christie
Governor Christie is embroiled in an interstate controversy with New York after a botched "traffic study" on one of the busiest bridges in the world ground traffic to a halt for miles. New York officials claim they were not notified of anything and many Democratic critics of the Governor claim that the sudden lane closures were retribution against the mayor of Fort Lee for refusing to endorse Christie in his reelection bid. Three of Governor Christie's appointees, including his former Deputy Chief of Staff, were charged with felonies. One has plead guilty and the other two are awaiting trial.
