Christie's Former Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly

A former staffer of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said on Tuesday, May 6, she did not believe that her ex-boss, a woman who has taken much of the blame for apparently politically motivated traffic jams last year, was the main architect of the George Washington Bridge lane closings.

The former staffer, Christina Genovese Renna, also said she was not involved in the closings, which have become known as the "Bridgegate" scandal and have taken a toll on the public image of Christie, a prominent Republican widely viewed as a 2016 White House contender. (Reuters)
