Bridget Kelly isn't smiling now

She's vowing to spill the beans on Chris Christie. Seems to be a little late for that but hey, dishing on what she knows, even at this late date might make me smile.

Outside the federal courthouse in Newark Wednesday, the former deputy chief of staff to Christie blasted her former boss, calling him a bully.

“Just because someone has the title of governor, doesn’t give them the right to mislead others,” Kelly said. “It’s dishonorable, and it only shows that person for the coward he is.”

Christie has denied knowing about the scheme and was never charged.

Claiming that she was one of the scapegoats in Bridgegate, Kelly vowed to set the record straight on Bridgegate — and Christie’s role in it — in the future.

“The days of you calling me a liar and destroying my life are over. The truth will be heard, and for the former governor, that truth will be inescapable, regardless of lucrative television deals or even future campaigns,” she said. “I plan to make sure of that.”

3. I Have Just One Question. Why did She Wait So Damn Long?

After seeing the magnitude of Trump's crimes Bridge Gate will seem like much ado about nothing to some people.

6. I Really Am Curious Why....

it took until now for Ms. Kelly to speak out. Surely she had the opportunity to flip on the governor. Instead, she allowed David Wildstein to serve her up on a platter to the U.S. Attorney. Baroni as well. Did they expect something for their loyalty?

From the NJ.Com article....This sure sounds like she's placing culpability with Christie. This kind of definitive statement should have been made long ago. As depraved as her actions seemed at the time, I've come to feel sorry for Ms. Kelly. Christie had a guardian angel somewhere and she certainly didn't . I'm sure she has come to regret the "is it wrong that I'm smiling" remark several times over. At the end, she's a single mom with 4 kids and what has to be a crushing legal bill to Mike Critchley and very few job prospects.

“How did all these men all escape justice?” she asked. “Chris Christie was allowed, without rebuttal from anyone, to say out of one side of his mouth that I was a low level staffer. A woman only good enough to plan menus and invite people to events. And then say out of the other side that I was somehow powerful enough to shut down the George Washington Bridge.”

She said there was only one person powerful enough to approve that, and that was the governor himself.

Kelly said she has been silenced and intimidated, but would not remain quiet any longer.

...and yes, Pest Control.

7. A a NJ resident she had quite the reputation as a bully aw well. Love to see these Rs tearing

each other up. Christie left office with a dismal approval rating. Our new Dem Governor Murphy lols like he may have the chops to go far and is very progressive.

8. She is a typical repugh.

The ONLY way to get them to see the light is for their own asses to get burned.

10. My sentiments exactly!

They should all go to jail. It's sickening how they play their games and screw with people's lives.

11. I'm surprised she waited so long. Christie runs around the country as a hero, she....

....is going to jail.

Maybe she had a midnight visit from Michael Cohen, saying "this is how you do it, Bridget!"

14. Christie is actively trying to launder his reputation

He should never be able to wash off the stink of what he did in NJ. Bridgegate was only the most visible. I don't get why Baroni and Kelly didn't turn on him. Maybe she just didn't have the documents that Cohen squirreled away.

15. Christie was the asshole who first claimed the orange...

...criminal was Presidential material, at least the first prominent Republican to do so.

It means his comfortable with racism, corruption and ignorance.

He should rot in Hell.
