New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is rapidly trying to distance himself from the 'deputy chief of staff plotting to create traffic problems' bridge controversy… his full statement (below) can be summed up: …
"This behavior is not representative of me or my Administration in any way, and people will be held responsible for their actions."
People will indeed be held responsible, with one very prominent exception.
The communications suggest that Christie’s deputy chief of staff and two of his top appointees at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey closed a pair of access lanes from Fort Lee, N.J., onto the George Washington Bridge into New York, causing days of gridlock and mayhem in the Fort Lee area last September.
“He is the worst example of bully and boss,” Buono said. “And this string of e-mails clearly exposes a web of deceit, subterfuge and arrogance leading straight to Chris Christie.”
The "throw everyone under the bus" Full statement
"What I've seen today for the first time is unacceptable. I am outraged and deeply saddened to learn that not only was I misled by a member of my staff, but this completely inappropriate and unsanctioned conduct was made without my knowledge. One thing is clear: this type of behavior is unacceptable, and I will not tolerate it because the people of New Jersey deserve better. This behavior is not representative of me or my Administration in any way, and people will be held responsible for their actions."
Of course, there is one very large exception to that statement…
