Chris Christie Helicopter Rides Probed In BridgeGate Scandal

Interesting story from the Post:

The New Jersey legislative committee investigating the Bridgegate scandal will probe records of helicopter rides Gov. Chris Christie took to see if he flew near Fort Lee while lanes leading to the George Washington Bridge were closed, sources told The Post.

Lawmakers also want to know if the New Jersey governor took a ride with then-Port Authority exec David Wildstein, who allegedly orchestrated the lane closures on the order of a Christie aide.

The committee, which meets in Trenton on Monday, is interested in any conversations the governor may have had with Wildstein last Sept. 11 after pictures surfaced of the two together that day.

Two of three lanes leading to the bridge were closed from Sept. 9 through 13.

Sources in the governor’s office said that Christie took a ferry to Ground Zero from Jersey City on the 9/11 anniversary and then flew back to Trenton, but that Wildstein was not on board.

Christie's helicopter rides have gotten him in trouble before this:

Christie was under fire two years ago for his frequent use of State Police helicopters, including a ride he took to fly from his son’s baseball game to a political meeting.

It will be interesting to see if they get him in trouble again.


  1. I do not know.. I am not a fan of Christie..but part of me think Wildstein is throwing out accusations to get the head off of him. He said he knows there is proof but has not forked any of this up yet, as far as we know.

    1. Wildstein can only get immunity if he has something to offer .
