Help TPM Dig Through The Chris Christie Bridge Scandal Documents

A New Jersey legislative committee on Friday released thousands of pages of documents related to the George Washington Bridge scandal that has ensnared Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) administration.

The Assembly Transportation, Public Works and Independent Authorities Committee put the documents online after introducing some of them into the record at a hearing on Thursday, where a former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey executive refused to answer questions about the lane closures.

Contributions from readers have been a key part of TPM’s reporting in the past. And we welcome your help with these documents. You can read the documents for yourself below. Please send tips and thoughts to [email protected], with “Christie Docs” in the subject line. Don’t forget to include the exhibit name and page number.

All of the documents are now available after some delays in downloading from the Assembly website:

Christie Bridge Documents – Exhibit B

Christie Bridge Documents – Exhibit C

Christie Bridge Documents – Exhibit D

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
