FORT LEE, NJ - JANUARY 09: Traffic drives across the George Washington Bridge, which connects Fort Lee, NJ, and New York City, on January 9, 2014 in Fort Lee, New Jersey. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is currently caught in a political scandal, in which one of his aides ordered The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to purposely cause traffic jams at the on-ramps to the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, NJ, due to political disagreements between Governor Christie and the mayor of Fort Lee. Christie claims he had no knowledge of issue and has since fired the aide. (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)
David Wildstein, a former Port Authority official appointed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie pleaded guilty to two counts in U.S. Federal court, admitting that he conspired with Christie's deputy chief of staff to close lanes of the George Washington bridge as political retribution to the Fort Lee Mayor for not endorsing the governor's reelection.
