Scandal: An Alternate Theory of Chris Christie's Bridgegate

Rachel Maddow was instrumental in bringing Chris Christie's "Bridgegate" scandal into the mainstream. She's been bringing it to light in several segments over the last few weeks. I thought that the story was interesting, but maybe not worth spending quite so much time on. Little did I know (and no wonder I'm a hobbyist blogger, and not a paid pundit). Now, Maddow's got her usual, different take on the story, apart from what the mainstream media has distilled it down to.

On the surface, it would seem that the whole thing came out of Christie's political retribution against the Democratic Mayor of Ft. Lee, New Jersey. But it's not necessarily the reason Christie's administration went after the Ft. Lee area. Going back to the date of the email exchange that began the traffic jams, Maddow has a theory on who else may have been the inspiration for the plot.
