Pettiness and Vindictiveness.  It seems that Gov Christie or one of his close aides retaliated against a Democratic mayor in NJ because the mayor didn't endorse Christie.  As is so often the case, other people bore the brunt of the retaliation.

As I've written several times, this Christie Bridge Scandal is far more potentially damaging for Christie that it might seem on its face because its fits so perfectly with the negative view (as opposed to the positive view) of Chris Christie. That is, that he and his crew are thugs and bullies. We have basically demonstrable evidence that one of Christie's top aides instructed Christie's crony at the Port Authority, David Wildstein, to create the series of massive traffic jams in the city whose Mayor wouldn't endorse the Governor.

 And these emails sound very Sopranos-esque. "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee," Christie Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly told David Wildstein, according to emails obtained by TPM. "Got it," Wildstein replied.
