Christie Ally Prepped Official Before Bridge Testimony

An attorney with close ties to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's (R) administration "helped prepare an official who gave now-discredited testimony that lane closures at the George Washington Bridge were part of a traffic study," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Philip Kwon, a top attorney at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, spent parts of four to five days helping to prepare Bill Baroni, then the authority's deputy executive director and its top executive appointment by Mr. Christie, before he spoke to a New Jersey legislative committee on Nov. 25, a person familiar with the matter said."
