Last week Chris Christie assured reporters that none of his appointees to the Port Authority were notified about a dangerous situation involving lane closures on the George Washington Bridge. Subsequently the Mayor of Fort Lee contradicted Christie and emphasized that many calls were placed to Port Authority officials notifying them about traffic jams related to the closure. Now the Bergen Record has obtained emails which show that lower level Port Authority officials were aware of hazards created by traffic jams and did advise PA executives including Christie's political operatives, Bill Baroni and David Wildstein. These hazards included delayed responses to emergency calls which involved a missing child and a case of cardiac arrest.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
