In light of in-court allegations that he knew of the illegal closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge, Chris Christie has abandoned his previous denials to stand and nod behind the federal case’s presiding judge.
“The governor was in the room while the defendants bragged about creating traffic problems in Fort Lee,” prosecutor Vikas Khanna said to the presiding judge and Christie, who nodded and for some reason clapped.
After the court was adjourned for the day, Christie was pressed by reporters about his tendency to stand and nod behind individuals with whom he’d previously disagreed.
“That is just ludicrous. I am a man of integrity,” said Christie, before storming off to stand and nod behind those same reporters.
