Fort Lee Traffic Jam Caused Human Debacle (Wochit)

For four days, the traffic jam now threatening the political future of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, wrecked havoc on the lives of Fort Lee residents, whose suffering has become the face of a still unfolding story. As questions swirl around whether Christie will run for president in 2016, people continue to cringe about the September lane closures on the George Washington Bridge. E-mails indicate several Christie supporters including Bridget Anne Kelly, his now fired deputy chief of staff, and David Wildstein, a Christie appointee at the Port Authority of New York, schemed to close the lanes to punish Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich. The result: stopped cars snaked through the small borough, slowing emergency service units, delaying school buses and making even blocks-long errand runs a source of prolonged frustration.
