We already know about class action lawsuit which had been filed. That's "Galicki v. State of New Jersey," which you can read about here.
Subpoenas also have been issued.
Now, reports Bloomberg:
"Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer met with federal investigators after she said New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's administration threatened to withhold Hurricane Sandy recovery grants unless she supported a development project."
Lietenant Governor Kim Guadagno denies the allegation. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is reviewing how the governor managed the funds for hurricane relief. Here is that article from Bloomberg.
As with Watergate, members of the Administration could wind up not only losing their jobs as Chief of Staff Bridget Kelly has. They could also serve time in prison. Kelly has four children.
No surprise, on a national level, Christie's unfavorability rating has doubled. Politico reports that, according to a poll by Pwe Research Center and USA Today, that rating has moved up to 34 percent from 17 percent.
As for 2016, even without Bridgegate Christie could suffer the fate of many who get plenty of national attention early in a presidential race. They tend to peak and fade - or even go down in flames. An example of the latter had been Vermont Governor Howard Dean.
But Bridgegate did happen. The issue is: What did Christie know and when did he know it.
