Christie Denies Lying about NJ Lane Closings

Friday, 31 Jan 2014 06:26 PM

 

Gov. Chris Christie's office says he told the truth about what he knew about politically motivated lane closings that caused massive gridlock in a New Jersey town last year.

Christie's office disputes the allegation in a letter from the lawyer of a former loyalist, saying it confirms what Christie has said since December. That is that he did not know about closures on an approach to the George Washington Bridge before they happened.

Christie's office says the governor did not know that they were anything but part of a traffic study until Jan. 8.

In a letter Friday, the lawyer for the former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official who ordered the lane shutdowns said Christie knew about the closures as they happened in September.

The lawyer for David Wildstein also "contests the accuracy" of other statements from the governor but did not say which statements.
