No evidence seen that Christie knew of traffic scheme: N.J. Democrat

By Victoria Cavaliere NEW YORK (Reuters) – A New Jersey Democrat leading a probe of the bridge traffic scandal that has engulfed Governor Chris Christie said on Sunday he has seen no evidence to support claims that the governor had been aware of the apparently politically motivated traffic jams as they happened. The remarks by Assemblyman John Wisniewski, who co-leads the probe, came two days after a former Christie appointee at the agency overseeing the bridge who personally oversaw the lane closures said “evidence exists” that Christie had knowledge of the blockage when it happened. If such evidence does exist, a state panel investigating the closures has not yet seen it, Wisniewski said. Separately on Sunday, Christie’s director of intergovernmental affairs, Christina Renna, resigned.
