FORT LEE, New Jersey (PIX11) – A massive backup stacked up in New Jersey Monday when a hole opened up on the upper roadway of the eastbound side of the George Washington bridge.

Emergency repairs are underway – first shutting half of the upper roadway along with one lane of the lower. Then a breakdown snarled traffic on the New Jersey-bound side.  To make matters worse, a crash on the upper roadway shut Manhattan-bound traffic down completely.GW Bridge thumb

The Port Authority says the emergency repairs are expected to continue into Tuesday morning and urged drivers to take alternate routes including the Lincoln and Holland tunnels.

    This same disgusting corruption and cover-up is commonplace at the Port Authority Bus Terminal's Lost & Found Dept. in NYC concerning lost & found property brazenly stolen by Port Authority Supervisors. Google  “Donna Lebourne abc news" & see the vile face of shame being confronted and exposed for the world to see.

    Port Authority Supervisor Donna Lebourne has an outside job, she is the Vice President of her & her husband’s charity Caribbean Sports International that donates cellphones & other electronics.  If you lost an item at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and did not get it back, contact her charity, perhaps she may donate your item back to you out of the kindness of her cold evil heart. It's very easy to be charitable when you are giving away other peoples' property.

    Also, the Port Authority of NY & NJ has become a threat to national security and has placed everyone's safety & security in jeopardy, by undermining all the counter-terrorism measures that have been put in place by the United States. They have allowed crimes such as the illegal policy of disposing lost valid passports in the garbage that are found in the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Now just imagine the damage that a terrorist cell could do with those valid lost passports or an identity theft ring. 

    What happened in Kenya could easily happen here, or anywhere else in the world for that matter, as a result of the Port Authority's intentional breach of national security. This is a willful act of treason against the United States of America. Google "Port Authority – Passports."

    NYC Police Comminsioner Ray Kelly agrees with my concerns as well.

    In this age of global terrorism and rampant identity theft, the Port Authority is a reckless shameful disgusting embarrassment of bi-state transportation agency when it comes to safety & security in this area. To ignore this gaffe would be a crime on all levels of local, state & federal government, who have the power to put a stop to this lunacy. 

    Action must be taken against these corrupt incompetent criminals in the Port Authority before another terrorist attack takes place and more innocent lives are lost due to their utter disregard about our safety and security, not to mention their disgraceful feeling of self entitlement to patron's lost property found at the PABT. Google “found, stolen, trashed by PA.”

    It’s time to stop the madness!
