N.J. Governor Christie aides face subpoena deadline in bridge scandal probe

Chris ChristieTop aides to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie face a deadline on Monday to reply to document subpoenas made by state lawmakers investigating a traffic scandal that has threatened the Republican governor's political future.

Lawmakers are investigating an incident from last September, at the height of Christie's re-election campaign, in which aides to Christie ordered access lanes from the town of Fort Lee to the busy George Washington Bridge closed, creating a massive, four-day traffic jam. The closures came after the mayor of Fort Lee, a Democrat, declined to endorse Christie's re-election bid.

Christie, who is widely seen as a leading Republican candidate for the White House in 2016, has said he was unaware of his aides' actions and has severed ties with several over their roles. Still, the scandal has hurt his image and polls show him losing ground as a potential presidential contender.

The Democrat-controlled state legislature has opened a probe, and has served subpoenas on Christie appointees at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversees the bridge, Christie's top aides and his re-election campaign.
