Two Ex-Christie Allies Plead Not Guilty in Bridge Lane Case

Two former allies of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie pleaded not guilty to charges that they plotted traffic jams near the George Washington Bridge to punish a local mayor for not backing his re-election in 2013.

Bridget Anne Kelly, Christie’s former deputy chief of staff, and Bill Baroni, former Port Authority deputy executive director, entered their pleas Monday in federal court in Newark, New Jersey, where they were indicted. Another former Port Authority official, David Wildstein, pleaded guilty that day and helped prosecutors build a case against Kelly and Baroni.
