Boom. From The Daily News:

Later Thursday, news emerged that the FBI had joined the growing list of government bodies, which also includes the U.S. attorney's office and a New Jersey state transportation committee, that are investigating the matter.


The Port Authority and the New Jersey state legislature are also probing the traffic nightmare, which raised questions about Christie's reputation for political payback and his White House hopes for 2016.

A class action lawsuit was also filed Thursday in Newark Federal Court against Christie and the state, with six Fort Lee residents charging they were “deprived of life, liberty and property” by the shutdown.

Also today, Rachel Maddow released, via twitter, a letter that the Office of Emergency Medical services sent to the mayor of Fort Lee during the lane-shutdown:

It is heartbreaking.

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.
