The Bridgegate Scandal Keeps It Fresh

Port Authority Commissioner's Resignation Definitely Has Nothing to Do With D.A.'s Investigation
Another resignation, and another investigation as Cy Vance gets in the mix.  I remember when even a few of my liberal friends were complaining about the initial media coverage.  Something about "manufactured outrage".
The Bridgegate scandal has led to far more scrutiny of the Port Authority's activities, and in addition to several probes into the Fort Lee lane closures, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. recently subpoenaed records related to high-profile projects at the agency, including the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site. On Monday Port Authority Commissioner Anthony Sartor resigned, making him the fourth top official at the agency to step down since the scandal broke – though Sartor says in his resignation letter that the "tipping point in motivating me to retire from public service now" was actually his grandson's 13th birthday party.
Of course, of course.
