Port Authority Chairman David Samson on resignation: 'Over the past months, I have shared with the Governor my desire to conclude my service to the [Port Authority of New York and New Jersey].

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he was previously unaware of apparent actions taken by his deputy chief of staff to orchestrate the controversial closure of local access lanes to the congested George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, N.J., in the midst of a re-election campaign. The action prompted massive traffic gridlock in the city on its first day of school.
Democrats have charged the closures were an attempt at political retribution for Mayor Mark Sokolich, a Democrat who declined to endorse Christie's re-election effort last year and whose city sits in the shadow of the bridge. - NBC News
