N.J. State Senator Calls for Investigation of Christie Administration for Possible "Criminal Acts"

In an interview with CNN’s "New Day", NJ State Senator Ray Lesniak said that he will call for a federal investigation into Gov. Chris Christie’s administration over allegations that top Christie appointees orchestrated traffic jams on the country’s busiest bridge last year as part of a political vendetta against the city’s mayor.

Sen. Lesniak said “There's certainly reasonable suspicion that criminal acts have been involved here. Not only abuse of governmental power for political purposes, but we have reckless endangerment of people's lives and possibly criminally negligent homicide.  Those investigations have to be pursued by the authorities of the U.S. attorney’s office.”
