From Bloomberg here:
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed off on a plan to issue a report that falsely blamed a communications failure at the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey for politically motivated lane closings that tied up traffic near the George Washington Bridge in 2013, according to testimony heard in a New Jersey trial.
Cuomo agreed to back the fake report because he didn’t want the gridlock at the bridge to escalate into a political problem for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who also approved the plan, according to testimony from David Wildstein, a key government witness at the trial of two of Christie’s former allies.
Regular readers know that both Cuomo and Christie are two of my least favorite politicians on the planet. Both are ethically challenged cretins with no skills except political manipulation and lying.
Let’s hope one or both of them drops dead soon. My money is on Christie.
