Fat & Furious was the presumptive GOP 2016 presidential nominee, before the bridge closings revealed his true character in a fashion the right-wing media could not ignore.  Note they've stated they picked the 1st day of school, to maximize the disruption.


Wildstein:  “Christie knew of the lane closings while they were occurring, and evidence exists to establish that.”


Kelly:  “The thought that I was the only person in the governor’s office aware of the George Washington Bridge lane closings is ludicrous.”
