We’re starting to think the only people who care about this minor scandal are the media, who, according to a radio report, outnumbered the paltry number of alleged victims.
Some northern New Jersey residents have returned to the scene of a notorious traffic jam that has created a major controversy in Gov. Chris Christie’s administration.
About a dozen people took part in a noontime protest Tuesday near the base of the George Washington Bridge, where unannounced lane closures last September snarled traffic and made Fort Lee residents miserable for four days.
According to the Star Ledger, prime movers in this ginned-up “scandal,” it was members of a “Democrat-leaning” group. Sure, they merely lean Democrat.
The organizers of the event, from a national group known as the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, a Democratic-leaning PAC, have created a website: ChristieResign.com where they said 13,000 people had signed an online petition calling for the Republican governor’s resignation if it’s revealed that he knew about the closures ahead of time.
That ChristieResign.com link brings you to a page run by these clowns, who would fall over if they leaned any more left:
Founded in 2009 by Adam Green, a former MoveOn online organizer and Democratic party communications worker, and Stephanie Taylor, former MoveOn and SEIU organizer, the PCCC has been at the forefront fighting for progressive change ever since.
The Nation magazine awarded PCCC “Most Valuable Campaign” of 2011. MSNBC’s Ed Schultz calls PCCC “the top progressive group in the country.”
Let’s see: MoveOn, SEIU, The Nation, Democratic Part and Ed Schultz. Hmm. Yes, we think they’re a bit more than Democrat-leaning. Oh, and how much did these alleged victims suffer?
Alex Howard, a 55-year-old systems analyst from North Bergen, bundled up against the bitter chill, said he and his wife, Eliza, were an hour late for a doctor’s appointment in Englewood Cliffs on the second day of the closures.
Every day of the year you’re subject to being an hour late to any appointment when traversing the GWB. That doesn’t make you a victim.
