Christie’s helicopter wasn’t over GWB in Sept, State Police say

Gov. Chris Christie’s helicopter did not fly over or near the George Washington Bridge during the time of the controversial lane closures, the New Jersey State Police said Tuesday.

The governor, who occasionally travels in the state police’s helicopter, took three flights during the week of Sept. 8. However, none of the flights included travel in or around Fort Lee, according to the State Police.

“None of the three flights transporting the governor during that week flew over, or close to GWB or Fort Lee including the flight on 9/11,” the State Police said in a statement.

"I don't think what he's doing tonight, the method by which he's doing it helps to build a trustful relationship."
