TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A Democratic New Jersey lawmaker leading a state investigation into a traffic jam scandal that has ensnared Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s administration says private email exchanges show a crime was committed.

Appearing Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Assemblyman John Wisniewski says using a public resource such as the George Washington Bridge for political retribution violates federal and state laws.

Four people close to Christie lost their jobs after a top aide gave the go-ahead to shut lanes to the bridge. Lawmakers are investigating allegations that Christie loyalists intended to punish a Democratic mayor who didn’t endorse him.

Christie has said he didn’t know of any plot to close the lanes.

Wisniewski says it “strains credibility” that the hands-on governor wasn’t told by senior advisers who received emails about the closings.

    Bridgegatesque corruption, cover-up & retaliation is standard operating procedure at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in NYC by Port Authority Supervisors.

    Gov. Christie promised to disclose any evidence “that come forward that requires action to be taken.” He added, “I will take it, no matter how much it hurts me personally or dismays me, because this is the job I asked for, and I’ve got to do it.”

    I wonder if that applies to the well documented rampant theft of Lost & Found property at the Port Authority Bus Terminal by Port Authority Supervisors, and the illegal written policy of throwing lost valid passorts in the garbage instead of mailing them to their respective embassies if their owners could not be found. Now just imagine the damage that a terrorist group or an identity theft ring could do with those valid passports. Google “Donna Lebourne abc news" & see the vile face of shame being confronted and exposed for the world to see.

    If the Gov. is a man of his word, he can start by axing all the supervisors at the Port Authority Bus Terminal involved in this criminal activity, the supervisors that turned a blind eye to it, and all the supervisors who participated in the coverup and retaliation as well. Every single one of them must be fired & prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for aiding and abetting this criminal activity.

    Gov.Cuomo stressed that the traffic scandal did not take place on his side of the bridge, which is controlled jointly by New York and New Jersey.“It was done on the Jersey side of the bridge,” he said. “The Jersey officials handled it.

    The thefts from the PABT’s Lost & Found Dept. by PABT Supervisors along with their illegal written policy of throwing valid lost passports in the garbage happened on the NY side of the GWB, so the New York officals should handle it. Gov. Cuomo it’s your turn to act, & don’t act like you didn't know. I've come to realize that ignorance is not only bliss, it is also contagious & spans both sides of the GWB. The ball is in your court.

    The culture of fear is alive and well at the Port Authority, closely followed by a culture of wretched stupidity. Believe me, I know firsthand and I have the evidence to prove it. GWB General Manager Robert Durando’s testimony at the New Jersey State Assembly Transportation Committee on 12/9/13 exposes the culture of fear that exists at the Port Authority, he is fully aware of what happens to whistleblowers at the Port Authority. Sadly, Durando and his boss Cedrick Fulton, along with many other Port Authority employees decided to put tens of thousands of lives in jeopardy just to save their own jobs. They are all cowards, nothing more than highly paid puppets of the Port Authority. Every single one of them must be fired & prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for aiding and abetting this criminal activity. The Port Authority has degenerated into a cesspool of crime, corruption, cover-ups & retaliation staffed with a bunch of clowns, cowards, liars & thieves.

    No one should be above the law, no matter who they are or who they work for.
