NEW YORK (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he’s still looking for the facts behind a traffic reconfiguration at the George Washington Bridge that created a huge traffic jam in Fort Lee, N.J.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie fired a top aide and distanced himself from his campaign manager after emails and texts revealed that the traffic changes had been ordered by people in his administration for the express purpose of tying up traffic.

Cuomo was asked about the scandal as he left the Rev. Al Sharpton’s headquarters on Saturday.

He said “Everybody wants the same thing. Everybody wants the facts. They want to know what happened.”

Cuomo said the multiple investigations underway would uncover the truth.

He added that he was sure that Christie was “very displeased with what happened.”

    This same type of 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.

    As a matter of fact, 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.

    Finally, a traffic study on 9/11…really, what’s next, the Port Authority giving all TSA airport screeners the day off on 9/11/14 to see if that speeds up the “screening process study?” I guess that makes as much sense as the Port Authority’s written illegally policy of throwing lost passports in garbage & letting their supervisors steal from the Lost & Found Dept. at the Port Authority Bus Terminal. The new investigatory panel should investigate these well documented crimes as well because the Port Authority has degenerated into a cesspool of crime, corruption, cover-ups & retaliation staffed with a bunch of clowns, cowards, liars & thieves.
