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.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
