  • Exclusive: Inside Bridgegate - New Jersey Monthly
    considered talking to her about everything first to get some more information but the lawyers in the room saw a potential land mine They didn t want charges of interference Perhaps they didn t want to know anything else given the legal scrutiny The job of firing Kelly fell to Porrino a man whom Kelly had never before worked with with an assist from Matey Kelly waited at home before finding out her fate At nine the next morning the men called to fire her She asked that her personal items not be sent to her house there were too many news trucks gathered outside A feeding frenzy on everything Kelly related had commenced Soon enough reporters found a picture on Kelly s Twitter feed of her celebrating her 40th birthday party with the governor himself Back in Kelly s old office in Trenton her former staffers were told by Christie s top lawyers DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING A lot of tears were shed in that office that day Over at Drumthwacket DuHaime might have been the most uncomfortable He was friends with just about everyone involved Perhaps DuHaime s closest friend in Christie s world was Stepien whom he had met back at that ice rink in Central Jersey when Stepien was just a teenager Just two months earlier Stepien and DuHaime had navigated Christie to a massive reelection win and then victorious and inseparable they took a victory lap at a hotel in Arizona where Christie was anointed chairman of the Republican Governors Association Together DuHaime and Stepien were supposed to lead Christie s presidential campaign But now here DuHaime was at Drumthwacket not Stepien This critical member of the inner circle said to be like a son to the governor was under suspicion because of his e mails with Wildstein In one Stepien called Fort Lee mayor Mark Sokolich an idiot and Wildstein responded by incorrectly referring to Sokolich s Croatian heritage It will be a tough November for this little Serbian Christie dispatched DuHaime to go meet with Stepien suss out what he knew DuHaime left Drumthwacket for the thankless mission At the Corner Bakery restaurant on Route 1 near Drumthwacket DuHaime advised his friend Stepien to hire an attorney because the Democrats were going to subpoena him Stepien said he wasn t involved in this scandal one bit and he was outraged that he couldn t talk to the governor to make his case Remarkably private even to his friends Stepien acknowledged a relationship with Kelly but he characterized it as a summer fling and said it had ended before the lanes closed Recommended Reading 10 HUGE Jersey Personalities For Vice President DuHaime asked if he thought Kelly was lying when she had told them that she wasn t involved in this Yes Stepien said DuHaime told Stepien that there was talk of his being forced out of the Christie operation The tone of the e mails made the governor question whether he could trust him anymore Stepien noted that nothing linked him to the planning execution or cover up of the lane closures Stepien s explanation was that he was trying to comfort Wildstein by sympathetically attacking Sokolich after all his traffic study idea had just blown up in his face Would this governor who by the way has the pottiest of potty mouths really nail him on calling the mayor an idiot Stepien s behavior did beg questions about whether he knew that something was amiss sooner than he had let on and if so why he hadn t done anything about it Why hadn t he just told Wildstein no when he first brought up this meshuga idea about lane closures months earlier Why didn t he foil this rogue plot These questions were now swarming around Stepien He was deemed politically toxic After their meeting DuHaime returned to Drumthwacket where he argued to keep Stepien in the fold He said that Stepien had done nothing related to the lane closures Others were spared after all Port Authority chairman Samson for example was implicated in one e mail as perhaps retaliating against New York officials after the lanes were reopened And he was keeping his job Stepien became the closest casualty to the governor Worst of all for Stepien was that Christie didn t fire him in person Instead his friend DuHaime did the dirty work This was not Abraham at the mount sacrificing his son this was Abraham passing the job off to Ishmael Wildstein e mailed Drewniak late that night The subject line was Serbian He asked Drewniak about Sokolich s appearance that day on CNN Did you see that bastard hamming it up on Wolf Blitzer Drewniak couldn t believe it He thought it was some kind of trap Was Wildstein trying to make it seem as if Drewniak was involved if and when these messages were subpoenaed Or was he really expecting Drewniak to be sympathetic Drewniak sent the e mail to the lawyers in Christie s office He was furious at Wildstein for everything and wrote this to his twin sister that night I could claw his eyes out pour gasoline in the sockets and light him up The headlines that Christie woke up to the next day were brutal Christie stuck in jam over GWB lane closings read the Record In its opening paragraph the article said the vindictive lane closures plunged the administration into a deep crisis on Wednesday threatening Christie s national profile as a straight talker and feeding criticism that his administration has used its power to bully political enemies The article went on to quote Buono the Democrat whom Christie had so easily beaten for reelection calling Christie s staffers terrible people The New York Times used four of its six columns at the top of the front page with a bolded italicized headline CHRISTIE FACES SCANDAL ON TRAFFIC JAM The headline was attached to a picture of a grim faced Christie

  • Where New Lives Cropped Up: Seabrook Farms
    Russian Army and even German prisoners of war to work for a company Life magazine called the greatest vegetable factory on Earth Most of the workers but particularly the Japanese Americans lived in Seabrook built homes with amenities they didn t have in the camps The work was hard the pay low and the hours long but there were valued amenities like schools and play areas for the children The war years made Seabrook an agricultural powerhouse In the ensuing years Seabrook was in the vanguard of the frozen food revolution At one point it processed more than 15 percent of the produce in the United States In the late 1950s a schism developed between the second and third generations of the Seabrook family The business was sold to a New York firm which closed operations in the 1980s As for the Japanese Americans many who had come to work at Seabrook stayed after the war raising their families in Cumberland County Some continued working at Seabrook until its demise some found other jobs in the area Many ultimately retired there There are no photos with those IDs or post 123209 does not have any attached images Read more Historic Jersey Jersey Living articles By submitting comments you grant permission for all or part of those comments to appear in the print edition of New Jersey Monthly 7 Songs to Comfort Christie on His Failed Presidential Bid Podcast Why We re Called The Garden State Table Hopping Jersey Shore Restaurant Week Melange in Somerville A Dress For Every Occasion NJ Father and Son s Wines Win Big 7 Dining Trends to Watch in 2016 February 2016 Best New Restaurants Table of Contents Subscribe Give a Gift Locate a Newsstand Purchase back issues View older issues Paper Mill Playhouse presents A
