Sources: unredacted emails due for release contain ‘salacious’ Wildstein comments

Sources tell PolitickerNJ tonight that unredacted emails related to Bridgegate contain “salacious” comments by former Port Authority official David Wildstein about reporters and others.

One source described the documents as emailed nastiness from Wildstein, who resigned over his role in Bridgegate.

Sources at the Statehouse today orginally said the legislative oversight committee investigating last year’s lane closures at the George Washington Bridge would release the emails in the late afternoon Wednesday.

It didn’t happen.

Another source told PolitickerNJ this evening that the New York Times and Bergen Record now have the emails and their reporters are calling subjects of Wildstein’s irritation.

A Statehouse source earlier this evening said the documents would be released en masse tomorrow morning.
