Booker: Probe into Christie's Bridgegate Involvement "Appropriately Agressive"

Thursday, January 30, 2014


When the allegations that the Christie administration was involved in shutting approach lanes to the George Washington Bridge - leading to hours of gridlock - Sen. Cory Booker said he was "deeply troubled."

Booker told WNYC's Morning Edition that he is paying very close attention to ongoing investigations which he called "appropriately aggressive."

"We did one inquiry from the commerce committee that I'm sitting on to make sure we're getting to the bottom of this," said Booker.

"Whether you believe or not, you've got to get the facts first." Booker said he was happy to hear the Christie administration castigate itself over the scandal and appear willing to work with investigators.

Gov. Christie & Gov. Cuomo, are both heads of the Port Authority and they should be investigated for allowing a clear threat to national security to happen during their watch and doing absolutely nothing about it. The Port Authority's illegal written policy to throw valid lost passports found at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in the garbage for anyone to find & use for their own nefarious purpose...i.e. terrorist groups or an identity theft ring is an absolute disgrace. The sad thing is that the only ones punished for this intentional breach of national security, which is tantamount to treason, were the honest PA workers who tried to put a stop to this illegal madness.

If you don't believe both Governor's knew about this as well as the well documented rampant & shameless theft of lost property at the PABT's Lost & Found Dept. by PABT Supervisors, I have a couple of Port Authority bridges I would like to sell you immediately.  Google Port Authority Supervisor “Donna Lebourne abc news" & see the vile face of shame being confronted and exposed for the world to see.

Also, it's very easy to be charitable when you are giving away someone else’s property. Perhaps that's something the IRS can look into.

The Port Authority has degenerated into a cesspool of crime, corruption, cover-ups & retaliation staffed with a bunch of clowns, cowards, liars & thieves."sarah+gonzales"

No one should be above the law, no matter who they are or who they work for.
