Bridgegate: Testimony Raises a Red Flag on PANYNJ Grant. Columnist Looks at Christie’s Once “Meticulously Managed Image.” reports, “The Urban League of Hudson County is at the center of new allegations arising out of the so-called Bridgegate trial.” In short, David Wildstein testified last week that Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop sought and obtained a $1.5 million PANYNJ grant for the nonprofit in order to keep a potential rival out of the 2013 mayor’s race. The report adds that both Fulop and Cunningham “have denied any knowledge of the alleged purpose of the grant.”

The Record columnist Charles Stile writes that the trial has “so far produced a counternarrative to the meticulously managed image of Christie as the bold, bipartisan leader determined to restore New Jersey’s reputation and finances.”
