Another Bridge Scandal in New Jersey Pops Up

"The George Washington Bridge may not be the only one used in an apparent act of political retribution by appointees of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and a familiar name in that scandal has surfaced anew," CNN reports.

"Last year, the mayor of Jersey City was supposed to meet with the state's transportation commissioner about a construction project that would temporarily close a section of the Pulaski Skyway, an aging bridge and elevated highway badly in need of an overhaul. But when Democrat Steven Fulop decided not to cross party lines and publicly support Christie's re-election, a meeting with Commissioner James Simpson was canceled."

Interviews point fingers at a former Christie deputy, Bridget Anne Kelly, who last summer apparently authored the now-infamous email: "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee."
