Drip. Drip Drip.

From NJ's largest paper:

State Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-Union) said [Friday] that if a claim by a former Port Authority official who oversaw the lane closings at the George Washington Bridge is true — that "evidence exists" Gov. Chris Christie knew about the closings when they were happening — then the state Assembly should take steps to start impeachment proceedings.
 Lesniak then advises Christie to do the right thing and resign if David Wildstein's statements are "sustained".

Of course, this does not mean the Assembly will take this up, but I find it amazing that there is even talk of this by an elected official. It was only a few months ago, during the gubernatorial elections, that top Democrats supported Christie or basically sat it out.

Similar to the federal impeachment process, the NJ Assembly impeaches and the NJ Senate tries.

For those in need of a score card.  Wildstein is the then Port Authority official and former Christie crony who arranged the George Washington Bridge lanes closures. He claims that there is evidence that Christie knew of the lanes closures as they happened.  Christie denied he knew in his marathon news conference on the topic.

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.
