This is nothing but funny. Almost karma-like for Christie following his closing of the bridge for political retribution.
In a nutshell: there's a ship full of rock salt bound for NJ held up in Maine because it's not a registered US vessel, sailing under a foreign flag.
New Jersey’s transportation commissioner, Jim Simpson, said in a radio interview on Friday that there was a ship in Maine that could carry the entire load to the Port of Newark within days but could not do so because it did not sail under an American flag.
“We’ve been going back and forth with the feds for the last two days,” Mr. Simpson told the station, New Jersey 101.5 FM. “This is the kind of stuff we’re dealing with. Even government, the federal government, gets in the way.”
Oh, you mean kinda like how you got in the way of thousands of commuters trying to cross a bridge?
