And It All Leads Back to…Donald Trump!

Ok, so back in 2007, David Wildstein, the guy who ordered the Fort Lee lanes to the George Washington Bridge closed and has since resigned in disgrace from his $150,000 political patronage job with the Port Authority, got financial backing to start a political website called Politicker.com.  That backing came from Jared Kushner, who was 26 at the time (rich father) and owned the New York Observer.  Wildstein had previously blogged about New Jersey politics under the name Wally Edge, but the new site would be national in scope.

Politicker.com lasted only about a year before failing for lack of eyeballs and ads.

Jared Kushner is married to Ivanka Trump, the Donald’s daughter.
