Lawmaker to seek more documents from Christie in New Jersey bridge scandal

Assemblyman John Wisniewski, a Democrat who chairs his legislative body’s Transportation Committee, told CNN he would make the request on Monday because “there’s still a lot of documents we haven’t gotten we’d like to see.” Wisniewski’s comments came a day after more than 1,000 pages of anxiously-awaited papers, subpoenaed by New Jersey lawmakers, were made public. They relate to revelations a member of Christie’s staff appeared to have orchestrated massive traffic jams over four days in September on the George Washington bridge that severely affected the town of For Lee, in what may have been political payback because the mayor there did not endorse Christie’s election bid. Christie, a powerful figure in the Republican Party and a likely contender for the White House in 2016, has adamantly denied any knowledge of an apparent scheme to snarl traffic.
