From the editorial board of the Newark Star-Ledger:
Forget about the White House in 2016. The question now is whether Gov. Chris Christie can survive as governor. David Wildstein, the man who ordered the George Washington Bridge lane closures, is now pointing the finger directly at Gov. Chris Christie, saying the governor knew about the lane closures in September when they occurred. That directly contradicts Christie account at his Jan. 13 press conference when he made this statement: “I had no knowledge of this — of the planning, the execution or anything about it… I first found out about it after it was over.” If this charge proves true, then the governor must resign or be impeached. Because hat would leave him so drained of credibility that he could not possibly govern effectively. He would owe it to the people of New Jersey to stop the bleeding and quit. And if he should refuse, then the Legislature should open impeachment hearings.
Key line: “By the governor’s own standard, lying is a firing offense.”
