N.J. Police: Gov. Christie did not fly over traffic during bridge lane closings

Is the Chris Christie investigation a massive witch hunt?

The New Jersey State Police now say the three helicopter flights Governor Christie took during the week of the lane closings at the George Washington Bridge did not go over or near the bridge.

That's crucial, because it means the governor didn't actually see the traffic.

Christie: Investigations won't 'curtail' agenda

Democrats in New Jersey investigating the governor's role were hoping for a different outcome, as they hunt for a smoking gun to bring the governor down.

Meanwhile Christie is in Chicago fundraising and attempting to go about business as usual.
