TRENTON, NJ – Just like traffic on the George Washington Bridge, ‘Bridgegate’ is going nowhere.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has got himself into a real pickle over this traffic jam.

New Jersey lawmakers released more than 1,000 pages of documents Friday that could shed new light on the scandal.

Christie’s staffers are accused of orchestrating huge traffic jams on the busy bridge to punish the Mayor of Fort Lee for not endorsing the Governor’s re-election.

The emails that have already surfaced from now former staffer Bridget Anne Kelly to Port Authority official David Wildstein, are crystal clear.

But it’s going to take some time to comb through the rest of them.

In addition to a legislative inquiry and the U.S. Attorney’s Office investigation, Christie is facing a class-action lawsuit, filed on Thursday.

The lawsuit argues the lane closures and subsequent traffic jams made people late to work, resulting in lost wages.

By the time all of this is over, the Governor may be ready to jump off a bridge — if he can get to it, that is.
