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.
