And New Jersey’s Star Ledger:

TRENTON — The attorney representing David Wildstein, the former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official who ordered the lane closures at the George Washington Bridge last year, today called into question the accuracy of Gov. Chris Christie’s statements on the scandal.

The charge, which was made in a letter sent by attorney Alan Zegas to the Port Authority, said Wildstein “contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some.”

Zegas also said, “evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference” last month.

Zegas goes on to say Gov. Christie has no grounds to deny his client payment of legal fees and the Stwar Ledger posted the actual letter in a .pdf file that looks like this:

It’s all going to come down to the money. In the end it always does. But clearly, Christie’s move to distance himself from Bridgegate by laying the blame on others and then pulling the plug on paying their legal fees is going to be his political – if not criminal – undoing.

For Gov. Christie, throwing his loyal followers under the bus isn’t going to be as easy a task as it was for Sarah Palin. Apparently, people from New Jersey didn’t read the Alaska handbook on Proper Minion Behaviour for they are not only standing up to their old bosses – but were smart enough to keep evidence to prove their positions.
