WASHINGTON – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie knew about the lane closings on the George Washington Bridge as they were happening, a former close ally said Friday, according to a report in the New York Times. The report said that David Wildstein, a high school friend of the governor who was on the Port Authority that controls the bridge and oversaw the lane closings, made the charge in a letter released by his lawyer. Christie said in a press conference that he did not know about the lane closures until this month.
