Few Americans now remember, but the revelation that a group of Cuban-Americans directed out of the basement of the White House had broken into Democratic Party headquarters in 1972 was merely the tip of the iceberg, as newspapers and media increasingly revealed that the "Plumbers," as the group came to be called, had engaged in many, may dirty tricks, not least among them breaking into the Los Angeles office of Dr. Henry Fielding, Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist.
So I've been wondering. Now that the cat is out of the bag about this one dirty trick played by Christie's minions on the people of Fort Lee and its hapless Mayor Sokolich, what other dirty tricks might they have been up to? Because as sure as the sun rises in the East, you know that their hijinks did not start with this little escapade, nor did they end there.
So I think one avenue of inquiry needs to be uncovering any and all acts played by Christie's staff, not just the lane closures for the George Washington Bridge. Pulitzers are earned for lesser work than this. Get busy, print journalists. Start digging and rest assured that, where there's smoke, there's almost certainly fire
