11. In mid-September 2013, two access lanes to the George Washington Bridge — which connects New Jersey and New York — were unexpectedly shut down for a week.
15. Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich and other Democrats immediately cried foul, suggesting the bridge closure was an act of political revenge for not supporting Christie.
16. The Christie administration pushed back hard against the allegation.
20. On Aug. 13 — a few weeks before the lane closings — Christie’s Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly had this rather unambiguous email exchange Christie’s Port Authority aide, David Wildstein:
Kelly: “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.”
Wildstein: “Got it.”
