Indicted former Christie staffer seeks other ‘conspirators’

An indicted former staffer for Gov. Chris Christie has renewed her efforts to get prosecutors to release names of people who may have known about lane closings at the George Washington Bridge in 2013.

Bridget Kelly says in a court filing that the government has admitted it has names of people who “may have had knowledge of the conspiracy” but didn’t join in it.

Christie’s former deputy chief of staff and former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official Bill Baroni face charges that they created traffic jams near the bridge to punish a mayor for not endorsing Christie.

Christie hasn’t been charged and has denied knowledge of the alleged scheme.

The government is to file a response Wednesday to Kelly’s and Baroni’s motions to dismiss the indictment.
