A Guide to The Four New Jersey Mayors Who Say Christie Was A Big Bully

The George Washington Bridge lane closures scandal isn't just about the bridge and the lanes anymore. While all the attention at first was focused on Fort Lee, N.J. Mayor Mark Sokolich -- whose decision not to endorse Gov. Chris Christie's (R) re-election last year was seen by some as the motivation for the traffic-jamming closures -- in recent days a number of other New Jersey mayors have come forward with fresh allegations about actions taken by Christie's administration. These mayors say they've gotten their own taste Christie retaliation:
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
1) Mark Sokolich, Fort Le

He's the mayor who started it all. Sokolich first suggested that political motives were behind the lane closures just days after "traffic problems" hit his town in September.

2) Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop made a cameo appearance in the subpoenaed documents released two weeks ago by state lawmakers.

"Radio silence [] His name comes right after mayor Fulop," former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey executive David Wildstein emailed to former Christie aide Bridget Kelly on Sept. 9, the day the lane closures began, after Kelly apparently asked Wildstein if another Port Authority executive had called back Sokolich.

I honestly didn't know the number was four. I thought 2 had come forward. I think this is just the start. We will all see.

2. The way he dissed teachers....

when they were protesting the cut to education amounted to nothing more than bullying. I am not a teacher nor do I live in NJ, but I have never forgotten or forgiven his rudeness. I am not shocked at his fall. Give someone enough rope....

4. I sure hope that you are correct...

It is his time to go down, as far down as the people he pushed down..And I think it will come out, that he pushed down lots of people.
And he tried and often destroyed them. Let that happen to him.
