War of Words Escalates Inside Port Authority

Internal squabbling at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has taken a new turn.

A day after Executive Director Patrick Foye slammed Chairman David Samson in print as unfit to lead the bistate agency, five members of the board of commissioners have sent a letter to Foye criticizing his actions.

The letter obtained by The Associated Press is signed by board members who are New Jersey appointees to the board. Samson, a Gov. Chris Christie appointee, didn’t sign the letter.

Foye is an appointee of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The Port Authority is being investigated for lane closures at the George Washington Bridge last fall that resulted in the resignations of two Christie allies at the agency.

Through a spokesman, Foye declined comment Wednesday afternoon.
