Chris Christie appointee "sorry" for lane closures

A bridgegate apology?

The chairman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, David Samson says he is sorry for the September George Washington Bridge lane closures.

"On behalf of the board of commissioners, we are deeply sorry for the inconvenience caused to our travelers." Samson said in a statement at the start of today's meeting of the Port Authority Board of Commissioners.

Samson is a Christie appointee and hasn't spoken publicly since the scandal broke.

    Sounds like an admission of guilt to me. Does it proves that Christie knew? Not really.
