New Probe Into Gov. Christie And The Port Authority

Investigations have been underway into the bridgegate scandal, with the US Attorney's office probing away, but now another probe has opened from the neighboring state.
New Probe Into Gov. Christie And The Port Authority

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Manhattan District Attorney has issued subpoenas for records from the Port Authority:

The subpoena, whose existence hadn't previously been disclosed, seeks correspondence among current and former authority officials and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's administration on topics including the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site, various projects in New Jersey and the PATH transportation hub in lower Manhattan, the person said.

The inquiries by Mr. Vance's office reveal a new front of scrutiny for the Port Authority, which has already been targeted by federal prosecutors and lawmakers in the wake of the George Washington Bridge scandal. The unannounced lane closures in September were orchestrated by Mr. Christie's aides and Port Authority allies, causing a five-day traffic mess in Fort Lee, N.J., allegedly as political retribution against the Democratic mayor of the borough.

This is separate from the current Bridgegate scandal, so it means Christie is now facing new problems. Maybe we'll get another hour long press conference out of it.
