More Bridgegate Panel Testimony

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A Port Authority official appointed by Gov. Chris Christie to the agency’s board of commissioners tells New Jersey lawmakers he wouldn’t have condoned using the George Washington Bridge for political retribution.

Commissioner Pat Schuber says he had no prior knowledge of the decision to block traffic near the bridge, a plot set in motion by a former Christie deputy.

Schuber is the latest official to appear before the legislative panel investigating the lane closings.
Sen. Loretta Weinberg says she was rebuffed by Schuber when she sought answers last fall on who ordered lanes near the bridge closed, leading to four days of gridlock in the town at the span’s base.

It’s since been discovered that loyalists to Gov. Chris Christie ordered the lanes blocked, apparently to retaliate against the mayor of Fort Lee because he didn’t endorse Christie’s re-election.

The U.S. Attorney’s office is conducting a criminal investigation into the lane closings.

Christie has denied knowledge of the plot’s planning or execution.
