Apparently, DU's Shankapotomus isn't the only one who wants to know who "Charlie" is (bridge emails)

Yesterday, Shankapotomus asked: Who is "Charlie" in the bridge scandal emails?

Who is "Charlie" in the bridge scandal emails?

Anyone know?

Could that be code for Christie or is there some other player in this I haven't heard about?

The email transcripts can be viewed here:


The "Charlie" reference is near the bottom of page 20.

If "Charlie" is Christie this is evidence he knew and approved.

The Mother Jones link Shankapotomus provided contains 22 pages of emails. I looked at page 20 yesterday, and saw the Charlie reference. Page 20 was black print on white background, as with all the other pages.

Today I went back again, because I was developing a possible Charlie* connection. This time, the section with the Charlie reference has been highlighted in yellow. It appears someone at Mother Jones is interested in Charlie, too.


*My possible "Charlie connection" was Charles "Ken" Zisa, who years ago lost a bitter recount battle by one vote to Loretta Weinberg. Yesterday, Rachel Maddow suggested a possible Weinberg connection to the bridge closures, asking whether she might have been the target instead of Ft. Lee's Mayor. But it's a long shot, and someone who knows a lot more about New Jersey politics is going to figure this out much faster than I ever could.

EDITED TO ADD: I didn't know so many were already focusing on the Charlie connection when I first posted this. For example: Please proceed, governor.

1. I think it's Charles McKenna

He's Christies Chief Counsel.

That's why Wiesnewski was hitting that so hard yesterday. . . If it's McKenna - it's a hot steaming bullet on the ground.

2. Thats the word.


That's what people believe. Why did no one ask, "what about Barone and Samson?" Samson is helping to retaliate? These were Christie's people at PA, Samson and Barone, he got very protective of them. I think he never did concede that the "traffic study" was a sham because if he admitted that, he would be saying that Barone's testimony before the committee was all lies, so he was protecting Barone. Of course he has to protect Barone because Barone has been his hatchet man and knows where too many bodies are buried.
