Bridgegate Protestors Swarm Fort Lee

Posted: Updated:
Fort Lee, New Jersey (My9NJ) - About a dozen people showed up in Fort Lee yesterday at the site of the lane closures to protest the ongoing bridgegate scandal.

Three victims who were stuck in traffic spoke out about what they endured that day.

“The first day, which was a Tuesday, my wife and I, mid-day were traveling from our home in North Bergen to our doctor’s office in Englewood Cliffs. It’s usually about a 15-20 minute ride, about seven miles, maybe ten at the most, and instead of taking 15-20, it took over an hour,” Alex Howard explained.

Many question whether or not the people who were stuck in traffic that day are in fact “victims”. Howard believes that he and his wife were definitely victims of the Christie administration.

“You can be a victim of circumstances as well as victims of an auto accident. The man did something that he shouldn’t have done, it affected people that it should not have affected,” he said.

The protestors are convinced that Governor Christie was aware of the closures and all of them have signed a petition asking Christie to resign if he was in fact involved in the whole mess. So far there are about 14,000 signatures on the petition.

At this time there is no evidence that Christie knew about the lane closures, something he continues to adamantly deny.
