Senate Chairman Of Transportation Committee Calls For Investigation Into George Washington Bridge Lane Closures

Three local lanes of the GWB were closed into Fort Lee, crippling traffic.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey legislative committee investigating politically influenced traffic jams that led to a public apology by Gov. Chris Christie has released hundreds of pages of documents.

The documents are expected to shed additional light on lane closings to the George Washington Bridge that led to four days of gridlock in September.

The governor apologized to the public and the mayor of Fort Lee on Thursday after a previous release of documents revealed his administration may have intentionally caused the traffic jam to exact political retribution.

He also fired a top aide and got rid of a top political adviser.

    I think this is small potatoes compared to the fact that the Governor wants to sign a bill to allow illegal immigrants to pay in state tuition rates for NJ colleges. That is the real scandal for NJ taxpayers.
