AP Counts Continuing Costs of Bridgegate Scandal (Beyond the Dollars and Cents)

Associated Press notes that realigning the bridge’s traffic cones one September morning probably took only minutes, yet the repercussions of that action are still being felt three years later. AP reports the scandal has cost millions in taxpayer-funded legal fees, “completely altered the trajectory of Chris Christie’s career,” subjected public officials to criminal prosecution, undermined PANYNJ employee morale, and caused the agency’s search for a new CEO to drag on for more than a year.
