The job of director of interstate capital projects, a special niche created for David Wildstein, the central figure in the George Washington Bridge scandal, has officially been abolished, the [Port Authority of New York and New Jersey] confirmed yesterday.Back in the good old days, Christie was proud of the job his henchman was doing. Now, not so much. In fact, it's gotten so bad that Christie is attacking Wildstein (apparently unfairly) for being a punk in high school.
Obviously, the fact that Wildstein's job was eliminated will make it even harder to justify having hired him in the first place. But it also creates another problem: The next time they want to shut down traffic lanes or pressure a mayor on a real estate development deal, where will they turn?
