Matt Katz pulls a little irony out of Bridgegate emails

Yesterday’s release of unredacted emails back-and-forth between Gov. Christie operatives in his inner office and public employees he was using as operatives inside the Port Authority showed a highly-questionable jokey convo about using their government power to cause traffic problems for a rabbi named Mendy Carlebach who David Wildstein said “pissed me off”. Here, he’s writing with Christie Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Kelly:

Kelly: “We cannot cause traffic problems in front of his house, can we?”

Wildstein: “Flights to Tel Aviv all mysteriously delayed.

Ah, then, WNYC reporter Matt Katz filed this little gem of irony, about a trip a group of NJ legislators made yesterday to Tel Aviv, sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Metrowest in North Jersey. Among the travelers, six members of the Bridgegate investigation committee including both its chairs, Sen. Loretta Weinberg and Asm John Wisniewski. Katz:

And wouldn’t you know it? Their flight to Tel Aviv was, indeed, mysteriously delayed. Two hours on the tarmac at Newark Airport, which is operated by the Port Authority.
