Ex-Christie Aide Testifies in Bridge Scandal

A former top aide in New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's (R) office testified that she "had no knowledge or involvement" in the plan to close New Jersey toll lanes to the George Washington Bridge, the Newark Star Ledger reports.

Christina Genovese Renna, who worked for Bridget Anne Kelly at the time of the lane closures, described her former boss as erratic and unstable, "enormously overwhelmed and enormously stressed with day-to-day life."

"Renna also gave an inside look into the workings of Christie's administration. Staffers routinely used personal email accounts to handle government business; it was hard to get clear orders or explanations from Kelly; and one member of the staff, Evan Ridley, could not be trusted when he said he was meeting mayors."
