With this news, the Presidential aspirations of Chris Christie are finished. The entire fight starting with the release of the "time for some traffic problems" e-mail, the press conference, and everything else that happened in New Jersey was actually about swaying Prieto one way or another on the decision he was going to make as incoming Speaker. Now it's over.
The incoming Assembly speaker says he'll call a special session next week to renew the subpoena power of the panel investigating the George Washington Bridge lane closures.
Congratulations to the Bergen Record, Loretta Weinberg, John Wisniewski, and all of the others who fought so hard to expose the truth.
