Bridgegate: NJ Judge Hears Arguments in Misconduct Complaint Filed Against Governor Christie

The Wall Street Journal reports that a Bergen County superior court judge heard argument on November 30 about whether to appoint a special prosecutor to handle an official misconduct complaint against Governor Chris Christie stemming from the George Washington Bridge lane closures incident. The Journal adds that the complaint was filed by a citizen activist who claims that testimony given in the recent Bridgegate criminal trial shows that Christie “knew about the lane closures while they occurred but refused to stop them, an allegation Mr. Christie has repeatedly denied.”
