Chris Christie lied to us? Naaah. Via a New York Times email alert. Enjoy!
Emails Link Top Christie Aide to Bridge Lane Closures
A series of newly released emails shows that Gov. Chris Christie’s office was closely involved with the lane closures at the George Washington Bridge in September and that officials closed the lanes as retribution against the mayor whose town was gridlocked as a result.
Mr. Christie has insisted that his staff and his campaign had nothing to do with the lane closures, and said that they were done as part of a traffic study.
But the emails show that Bridget Anne Kelly, a deputy chief of staff to Mr. Christie, gave a signal to the Port Authority to close the lanes about two weeks before they occurred.
Of course, he'll plead innocent and blame his staff. But we all know that this was orchestrated, and that there's no way he wasn't behind this or at least known what was going on. He may try to slither and slime his way out of a smoking gun moment, and he may even succeed, but on the Official Scale of Trustworthiness, he just sank to -1000.

UPDATE: For even more damning details, please read Blue Jersey's post here:
Governor Christie's deputy chief of staff told one of his top Port Authority executives that it was "time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee" several weeks before controversial lane closures took place at the George Washington Bridge, according to sources.
