Chris Christie has, politically speaking, stepped in shit. This story about the Governor's people closing down the busiest bridge in the country as payback because a mayor of Fort Lee, New Jersey didn't endorse him has the potential to end his political career. Christie is attempting to claim that he wasn't involved in this scandal because he had no idea what anyone in his own administration was up to. He's basically saying, "I'm not a vengeful, petty bully, I'm a clueless idiot." Good luck with that, Governor.
