NEW YORK Jan 31 New Jersey Governor Chris
Christie on Friday said that a letter from a former Port
Authority official confirmed he had no prior knowledge of the
bridge traffic jam that sparked a political scandal.
The letter, reported by the New York Times, claimed the
official had proof of the "inaccuracy" of some of Christie's
statements. But Christie's office said the letter "confirms what
the Governor has said all along - he had absolutely no prior
knowledge of the lane closures before they happened."
