Texts, e-mails suggest political vendetta in NJ bridge controversy

E-mails emerged on Wednesday purportedly from top aides to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie that bolster the case that access lane closures to the George Washington Bridge were borne from a political vendetta against opponents of the governor, and were not the result of an incompetent traffic study as his administration claimed.

"Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee," Bridget Anne Kelly, Christie's deputy chief of staff for legislative and intergovernmental affairs, e-mailed David Wildstein, then the highest-level political appointee representing the state at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Programming Note: Wolf Blitzer will interview the Mayor Mark Sokolich of Fort Lee today in "The Situation Room" at 5 p.m. ET.

    First we had to hear Christie for an hour and a half about this...now it's another hour and a half follow up...#what else is going on in the world?

    Is this any different in character for Christie than the Trout/Barlyn Flemington/Hunterdon County Sheriff controversy illustrates?
