Was the Hudson Lights Dev. the reason behind the closures to the GWB?

Here a part of an article from a NJ real estate writer about the development.

quote
Having covered politics in New York and Pennsylvania for the Albany Times Union and the Patriot-News, it certainly seems as if it is well within the bounds of PLAUSIBLE -- given the kinds of dollars and players involved in deals like these -- that this real estate development deal is exactly the kind of issue that would cause political operatives to go wilding on a retribution scheme.

For instance, bond deals are always fodder for jealousy and shenanigans, because of the fees involved in generating the financing. What about the bond deal for Hudson Lights, as secured by Tucker Construction via banking giant Sovereign Santander? It's just one place to scratch around on to see if somehow, there are threads to be pulled. Retribution like closing bridge lanes may sound like stupidity, as Christie tried to characterize it. But it could be far worse and intentional that stupidity.

The key, going forward, will be to outline the background of this real estate development project. Nothing of this magnitude gets done anywhere without a lot of hands in the pot, or a lot of actors feeling like they may or may not have gotten their share of the deal.

1. I agree and hope they subpoena Michelle Brown

I suspect they don't want to get onto the financial weeds in the front part of the investigation, but I hope they do. She must be a key figure in the project.

2. I think David Samson and his law firm is the place to focus.

Lives were not put at risk on the GWB for shits and grins. This is about mountains of money and Samson wanted to muscle in on the redevelopment on his terms and screw that little mayor who was not cooperating with the right money guys.

The other night on MSNBC they were doing a run-down on all of Samson's connections and commented in passing that he has been in on every major development in NJ for many years.

3. Samson is absolutely at the crux of this incident!



If development or redevelopment is taking place in NJ-Samson and his law firm are nearby. If Samson is nearby, Christy is close at hand. Pull the strings!
