Parallels between Christie and Nixon “gates”

Bridgegate appears to be heating up once again.  We’ve learned that Chris Christie’s records relating to what he knew and when he knew it have turned up missing.

nixon-christie.jpgWNYC points out the parallels between the circumstances surrounding Christie’s Bridgegate and Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal.

And more disturbing Bridgegate questions are arising. For example, what is the identity and role of this “John Doe” that’s fighting so hard to keep his role hidden?

And -- Are we seeing a replay of Nixon’s Watergate tape debacle? Who lost or hid Christie’s cell phone and cell phone records?

And now, there’s evidence that Christie knew that the state agency that triggered the George Washington Bridge lane closings was promoting his gubernatorial campaign.
