Christie is asked to leave Amtrak’s quiet car, going from to New Jersey from Washington, D.C., after passengers complain to a conductor about him yelling at his security detail and into his cell phone. A woman who sat across from Christie said the incident was no big deal, and that the once the governor learned he was in the quiet car, he left quickly and courteously. Rep:
On a very full train this morning, the Governor accidentally took a seat in Amtrak’s notorious quiet car. After breaking the cardinal rule of the quiet car, the Governor promptly left once he realized the serious nature of his mistake and enjoyed the rest of his time on the train from the cafe car. Sincere apologies to all the patrons of the quiet car that were offended.
