NJ Assembly Majority Leader: Christie aide didn't make this decision independently

In an interview with Wolf Blitzer, New Jersey State Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald talks about subpoenas, top Christie aide Bridget Kelly, and the questions his special investigatory committee will be trying to answer as they dig into Gov. Christie's scandal. He tells Wolf he would be “shocked” if Kelly “made this decision independently” to close the bridge lanes last September.

    During the comment " I quess I should feel sorry for the children", both Christie Aids and Christie himself were viewing on computer, the traffic jam at the GWBridge via GWBridge security cameras they were able to tap into because of the Governor's security clearances. Christie watched in delight as they resolved they were children who's parents probably voted for his political opposition. Investigators need to look into this and maybe the NSA can finally be of good use, if they have collected data in regards to Govenor Christie's Aids laptops. Ms. Kelly did not dream this up on her own, rather she was directed. The crime here is terrorism and should be investigated as such. Imagine the children on the school bus, imagine the school bus drivers, imagine the average bridge user, imagine the mental anguish forced upon patriotic American citizens for a week. Imagine the potential loss of revenue and imagine the woman that died because she couldn't get medical care in time. Why... because patriotic Americans exercised their right to vote. As Christie watched , he said, serves you right to suffer. This is one incident as they investigate further, they will discover many cases where the Sandy Aid Money was misused or even disappears as well. I'm trying to narrow down the day Christie resigns, I hear they are betting on that in Las Vegas, will he last the week, a month or two. It's unfolding pretty quick, I'd be surprised if he doesn't make some attempt to flee and Ms Kelly should get herself into protective custody ASAP, no matter how loyal she is or was, her life very well could be in danger. Deductions and advise again,free of charge. Call it patriotic duty.

    Christie has Breeded a Culture of Retaliation or Corruption. To have so many people in on the scandal, at a moment notice, speaks to what they have been practicing. This type of culture can only come from the Leader who endorses the behavior. It's asinine that a leader would cut off his ear to spite his face. Don't he know that as he does good in all of New Jersey, that it raises his stature.....he's more successful and has a stronger platform to pursue higher goals?
