September 8, 2015- Few news outlets have been more critical of the cesspool of corruption called The Port Authority of NJ NY than BP.TV. Now this:

The NYT reports, “United Airlines said Tuesday that its chief executive officer, Jeff Smisek, and two other senior officials had stepped down after a federal corruption investigation.

The airline is under investigation by the United States attorney in New Jersey over whether it had improperly sought to influence senior officials at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.”

Apparently, the CEO created a special flight to South Carolina just to make it easier for the Chairman of the Port Authority, David Samson, to get to his vacation home. Once Samson was ousted due to Bridge-gate, the flight stopped (Why is no one going to jail over Bridge-gate?).
