Chris Christie feels his man boobs in 2012 GOP convention
The full text of a one-line email in August from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's Deputy Chief of Staff to her high school buddy and Port Authority crony David Wildstein:
Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.
Wildstein's response:
Got it.
One month later, Fort Lee suffered through four days of gridlock inflicted by Wildstein—and ordered by Christie's staff—as they forced a phantom "traffic study" on the town that closed all but one lane to the George Washington bridge. People were forced to sit through four hour car delays, including children, all because Fort Lee's Democratic mayor had refused to endorse Christie. But that was okay, Wildstein said, because...
“They are the children of Buono voters,” Wildstein wrote, making a reference to Barbara Buono, the Democratic candidate for governor, who lost to Christie in a landslide in November.
...which sheds some light on Christie's December 13, 2013, claim that the the lane closures were "absolutely unequivocally not" political. The emails were obtained by the Bergen North Jersey Record, and at first read, it seems pretty clear they should put an end to Chris Christie's presidential ambitions, if not his second term.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
