Yesterday, as the Bridgegate Select Committee on Investigation (SCI) prepared to formally release their findings everything had to come to a halt so Sen. Kevin O’Toole could throw some smoke. It was quite the show. He complained Republicans were being mistreated, and went on to question co-Chair John Wisniewski’s motives and actions – – even comparing him to Kim Jong Il. Asm Greenwald, watching this, said he’d never seen such a level of unprofessionalism in his 20 years in Trenton. There were also loud complaints about the number of times co-chairs Wisniewski and Weinberg had been invited on TV.
So this sober account of where the investigation stands – with Weinberg and NBC’s Brian Thompson on Hardball with Chris Matthews – should unsettle O’Toole mightily. Oh well.
