Join Chelsea and other supporters and volunteers as we sign up and get involved in the campaign ahead of the New Jersey Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday, June 7.
There were those who once assured me that Bridgegate would never grow national legs, and nobody really cared what happened to stranded NJ commuters. When Chris Christie suspended his campaign, that appeared likely. But Christie is now part of The Donald's campaign, and the saga not only continues, the plot thickens, and the snare snags members of the Trump family. Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in! You can't make this stuff up.
05.11.16It turns out that Jersey’s dirty business doesn’t stay in Jersey.
Tuesday, a federal judge in New Jersey was deciding to release the names of the unindicted Bridgegate co-conspirators—the people who knew about the plot to close the access lanes to the George Washington Bridge, but weren’t charged. The decision came after 13 media outlets requested the information be unsealed.
“Although privacy for third parties is indeed important,” U.S. District Judge Susan D. Wigenton wrote in her statement, “this court is satisfied that the privacy interests of uncharged third parties as insufficiently compelling to outweigh the public’s right of access.”
As part of her decision, Judge Wigenton cited a 2005 case called U.S. v Kushner, but I like to think of it as Christie v Donald Trump’s Son-In-Law’s-Dad.
We'll talk about how both of these guys scorched Atlantic City some other time. You may recognize, in my Hillary4NJ logo, the bridge over the Paterson Great Falls (a National Park) over which a couple of Tony Soprano's guys tossed a dude who was withholding some of his collections in season 1 episode 1. Much earlier, Alexander Hamilton, of whom you may have heard, lunched at the foot of these falls once with George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette and decided then and there to found the first industrial city in the United States near these falls. The silk mills built Paterson, and it was probably inevitable that they would also help generate the labor movement in the United States.
We are ready for Hillary in New Jersey!
