Turns Out Chris Christie Hated Traffic on the George Washington Bridge, Too

Before Bridgegate, the governor explained the best part of being boss was driving to New York with no gridlock.

If last September, you happened to have been stuck in traffic on the Fort Lee side of the George Washington Bridge, fear not: Chris Christie can relate.

Or at least he used to be able to. At least that is what he told a second-grader at a townhall last February.
