NJ Gov. Christie caught in political tricks controversy
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says, "people will be held responsible for their actions," amid a political dirty-tricks investigation involving his aides and political appointees.
Emails and text messages released today suggest Christie's deputy chief of staff and a top Christie appointee on the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey engineered traffic jams in Fort Lee.
Mayor Mark Sokolich says the decision to close two lanes leading to the heavily trafficked George Washington Bridge was an "appalling" example of "political pettiness."
Christie denies he was involved, saying the aide misled him.
