NY Times: “All Eyes Are on Chris Christie as Trial in Bridge Scandal Starts”

The New York Times reports, “The trial in the George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal, which is scheduled to open on Thursday [September 8] with jury selection, will play out like a documentary on the rise and fall of Mr. Christie’s presidential ambitions, a tell-all tale of how he and his aides built his administration and his 2013 re-election campaign with an eye to winning the White House, then scrambled to contain the damage as inquiries into the lane closings began to wreck those hopes.” (Otherwise, just another day. . . .)
