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.

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
