From The New York Times:
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan have subpoenaed the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for records related to potential conflicts of interest involving its chairman, David Samson, a prominent New Jersey lawyer and close political ally of Gov. Chris Christie, according to people with knowledge of the matter.http://www.nytimes.com/...
The business dealings of Mr. Samson and his law firm, Wolff & Samson, have come under intense scrutiny as a result of the politically charged closing of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge in September and the burgeoning scandal that ensued. The lane closings are the subject of a separate inquiry by federal prosecutors in New Jersey, who are examining the roles of several current and former aides and allies of Mr. Christie.
So much has already been reported about the sketchy dealings of Port Authority Chief David Samson, and New Jersey's most widely circulated paper, The Star-Ledger, has called for his resignation. I'm surprised he still has his job. As many have said, it seems Christie and Samson are going to stick together and try to weather the storm. If one falls, the other is sure to follow. This latest subpoena should hasten their downfall.
