TRENTON, N.J.: A former loyalist of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who oversaw lane closings near the George Washington Bridge says there is evidence that contradicts what Christie said about the shutdown during a two-hour news conference three weeks ago.

In a letter Friday, David Wildstein’s lawyer says his client “contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some.”

Attorney Alan Zegas also says evidence exists that suggests the governor knew about the closures as they happened in September. Christie has given a series of statements about when he learned of the lane closures but has denied knowing of any political motive until early January.

Wildstein was Christie’s No. 2 man at the agency that runs the bridge. He has since resigned.

Zegas and Christie’s office did not immediately return messages.
