Poll: How Long Can Chris Christie Steer Clear of Bridgegate?
Given the indictments, do you think it’s only a matter of time before the governor is tainted by the scandal?
Late last week, three of Gov. Chris Christie’s appointees were indicted in what’s become known as the “Bridgegate” scandal -- the closure of two of three lanes leading from local streets in Fort Lee to the on-ramp of the George Washington Bridge. The sudden lane closures caused a nightmare traffic jam in 2013, and the Christie aides are being accused of creating the problem in a political-retribution scheme.
Christie, who by all accounts is positioning himself as a 2016 GOP presidential contender, has noted that he has yet to be tied to the scandal by his own internal investigations and by the U.S. Attorney General who brought the indictments.
