Gov. Christie's Aide Linked To Revenge Traffic Jam

(Washington, DC) -- New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is finding himself stalled in a political traffic jam. Newly released emails link his deputy chief of staff to an alleged effort to create traffic problems for a mayor who wouldn't endorse the governor's bid for reelection. One of Christie's top aides at the Port Authority closed down Fort Lee's access to the George Washington Bridge on the first day of school in the New Jersey borough. Widespread congestion from the busiest bridge in the country was backed up into local streets. Fort Lee's Mayor Mark Sokolich tells "The Huffington Post" he never explicitly said he wouldn't endorse the reelection bid.

Christie has been denying any involvement with the mean-spirited scheme for weeks. He claims the closures were part of a traffic study and he stands by his aides' reasoning.
