FORT LEE, N.J., Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Victims of the massive traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge in September demand Gov. Chris Christie resign if it is found he was responsible.

The protesters gathered in a park overlooking the bridge holding a petition with 14,000 signatures demanding Christie step down if investigators find he bears any responsibility for the lane closures.

Corey Teague, whose Washington-based left-leaning political action committee arranged the protest, said, "The role of government is to help the people but last September the Christie administration used government to attack people."
