Bridgegate: Wildstein Links NY Governor Cuomo to Lane Closure Cover-Up

Asbury Park Press reports, “As reporters and lawmakers clamored for answers about the unannounced lane closures at the George Washington Bridge, Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo agreed that the Port Authority would issue a report falsely attributing the debacle to a traffic study, the trial’s star witness,” former PANYNJ official David Wildstein, “testified Tuesday [October 4].” Cuomo’s office promptly refuted Wildstein’s assertion and said New York’s only role in the fiasco was to stop the lane closures. reports, “Two days after Gov. Chris Christie brushed off a reporter’s question about the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal, joking he was ‘actually the guy working the cones out there,’ another top-level gubernatorial staffer was told details about the political revenge scheme,” Wildstein testified during his seventh day on the witness stand.
