It turns out that the Bloomberg Business story that David Wildstein, Governor Chris Christie’s former #2 man at Port Authority of NY/NJ,would plead guilty to an unspecified federal charge associated with the Bridgegate scandal today, is not so.
U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman’s Public Affairs Office sends an email to the media every morning with a heads up of proceeding that are planned for the day. There was no proceedings including Wildstein in this morning’s email. I emailed Matthew Reilly, the Public Information Officer. “Nothing on Wildstein? Was the Bloomberg leak another false alarm?” “Nothing on Wildstein,” Reilly responded.
There were going to be Bridgegate indictments announced in December, January and March, according to mainstream press reports. They never happened.

Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth) said today that he is asking U.S Attorney Paul Fishman to open criminal investigations into the municipal clients of Redflex Traffic Systems, an Arizona based red light camera company, due to legal claims by a former executive that the company routinely bribed municipal officials in 13 states, including New Jersey, in order to obtain the lucrative contracts to operate camera systems that issue summonses for red light infractions.
Additionally, O’Scanlon is writing to Assembly Transportation Committee Chairman John Wisniewski to ask that the committee open an investigation into New Jersey’s red light camera program in light of the recent bribery allegations and scientific proof commissioned by O’Scanlon that red light cameras are a detriment to public safety that are rigged to cheat motorists.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Declan O'Scanlon, NJ DOT, NJ State Legislature, Paul Fishman, Public Corruption, U.S. Attorney | Tags: Aaron Rosernberg, American Traffic Solutions, Assembly Transportation Committee, Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon, Assemblyman John Wisniewski, ATS, Declan O'Scanlon, Department of Transportation, John Dee, John Wisniewski, NJ DOT, Paul Fishman, RedFlex, Steve Shapiro, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, U.S. Attorney's Office | 10 Comments »
