TRENTON, N.J. — A former high school classmate of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who masterminded the 2013 George Washington Bridge lane-closing scheme says he wasn’t as lucky as a baseball fan who got away with heckling Christie at a Milwaukee Brewers-Chicago Cubs game.

Christie on Wednesday reminded people he didn’t dump his nachos on the Cubs fan who heckled him days earlier.

But former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official David Wildstein tweets he wishes all Christie dumped on him “were some nachos.”

Wildstein contradicted Christie’s account that he didn’t know about the plot to deliberately create traffic jams at the bridge until months afterward and was sentenced last month to three years of probation. He said then he had put his faith “in a man who neither earned it nor deserved it.”

Christie wasn’t charged in the traffic jams scheme at one of the world’s busiest bridges.
