I'm back to not understanding what it is you won't concede? What last point? Do you deny the alleged authors of the emails resigned? I can get you links. Do you deny the port authority chief took the fifth? I can provide video.

There is no question they authored the emails: They do not deny it, and they resigned. That's confirmation. So what exactly do you not concede? :huh:

Just a hunch, dear. I would, however, love to see links to the other pages of these emails. But I can find that myself. No need to trouble yourself.

Perhaps, but it's more likely a Dim. I doubt there are many TEA Party people working in/for Christie.
But in Jersey? Dimocrats infect every corner of that State.

Personally, I think Christie is an ass, and he probably was behind this 100%.
But I see no difference between them closing a traffic lane, and how Obama closed all the National Parks and Monuments during the government shutdown.
Politicians use the citizens as pawns in their game of power. Why is anyone surprised?


I damned Obama for that. LOUDLY. On these boards.

I damned him MUCH more loudly than I damn Christie. I give a shit about Jersey. But in my OPINION, the fat man is toast behind this.

You need to realize two things: What Obama did, he did as a LAME DUCK. And the other thing is this: What Christie did, MADE him a lame duck. He's done.

Yea the point was as I had originally said, "Pretty sure you can't use FOIA to get personal emails and text msgs."

How much weed you smoke a day?


Pretty sure people don't resign over easily disproved emails.

What is your contention - that these emails that even Christie acknowledges as real somehow are not?

Seems the conservative brain is wired to deny reality by cooking up new conspiracy theories, without limit!


Yup. He admits it, his defenders refuse. Pretty sad.

Does lack of denial mean immediate guilt?


Lack of denial means acknowledgement of the validity of the emails. So does resigning over the emails. So does pleading the fifth over the emails.

Yes. It means all of that. Guilt is a question for a jury. The rest of it? Not so much.

This is as close as I can get, regarding the release. Our press is run by drunks and hacks. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure their job is to protect their sources, so "Who leaked the emails" is not something they have a duty to disclose.

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/01/08/i ... or-a-liar/

The man who led an investigation into the George Washington Bridge lane closures said on Wednesday that recently published emails proved that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) either did not know what was going on in his own office or was lying to the public.

Emails released on Wednesday added to suspicions that mid-September lane closures on the George Washington Bridge were political retribution against Democratic Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, who endorsed Christie’s opponent in the 2012 gubernatorial race.

Pretty sure you can't show me anywhere I said the emails were fake. What I said was they weren't obtained by FOIA requests.

You retards should try some reading comprehension before getting your granny drawers in a bunch.

Don't use government property to send incriminating emails. As for private emails... If the email address is used for public business its fair game. So yes, an foia could have been used.

And WAS used, according to news reports. Where my barrister pulled any contrary claim from is anyone's guess - and MY guess is: HIS ASS! :rofl:

The documents were released by David Wildstein, who turned them over under a subpoena from Democratic legislators investigating the lane closings.


And that should answer the question of who leaked them to the press.


Nevermind. :)
