Hundreds of Pages of NJ Bridge Scandal Documents Released

Bedtime reading


The New Jersey's top official at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey attempted to stop the agency's executive director from ending closures of lanes that accessed the George Washington Bridge, according to documents released Friday.

Authority Executive Director Patrick Foye — in a fuming Sept. 13 e-mail to several authority staffers including then Deputy Director Bill Baroni and Authority Chairman David Samson — complained about the lane closures, calling the decision "troubling" and saying he believed the action may have violated the law.
