Another Bridgegate Resignation

More Bridgegate fun:

Gov. Chris Christie announced today that David Samson, whose chairmanship of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has come under fire in recent months, has resigned.

Samson, a close ally of Christie and a former attorney general of New Jersey, is reportedly under investigation by the U.S. Attorney of New Jersey in the face of accusations that his law firm, Wolff & Samson, had enriched itself by lobbying for companies with business before the Port Authority.

...

The stunning announcement came at the beginning of a Statehouse news conference, the first since a a two-hour session on Jan. 9 when Christie accepted responsibility for politically charged closing of access lanes at the George Washington Bridge and announced the dismissal of two close aides.

Christie tried to put a positive spin on the resignation in a press conference the NY Times described as "combative."

But Samson had to go because he's under federal investigation for alleged conflicts of interest and other potential corruption at the Port Authority.

Samson may also be complicit in the Bridgegate mess, considering he's named in the emails and was said to be taking care of some stuff when the NY Port Authority officials tried to put a stop to the lane closures.

Samson's resignation today is just one more sign Christie's got a whole heap of trouble from the three scandals dogging him (Bridgegate, Sandy Aid, the Port Authority/Samson scandal.)
