STATEWIDE -- In what sounds like bad news for Gov. Chris Christie, his former appointee to the Port Authority who directed lane closures to the George Washington Bridge has reiterated that "he is ready to share more information if he can be granted immunity from prosecution," the Associated Press reported Friday.

David Wildstein resigned from the agency last month amid the growing scandal. News broke this week suggesting that a job was created at the PA just for Wildstein because he was a close ally of Christie.

Friday's AP story noted, "Meanwhile, 17 other people and three organizations are being issued subpoenas as lawmakers try to learn exactly how the September lane closures on an approach to the George Washington Bridge from the community of Fort Lee happened and why."

Observers have suggested that the Christie administration clogged arteries in Fort Lee after the town's mayor said he would not endorse Christie for re-election in November. Christie has denied any retribution and has denied knowledge of emails and texts among his staff and Wildstein, joking about the lane closures and how they'd affect Fort Lee.
