Chris Christie, left, during a tour of the Seaside Heights, N.J. boardwalk after it was hit by a massive fire. Christie fired Kelly Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014, and apologized over and over for his staff's "stupid" behavior, insisting during a nearly two-hour news conference that he had no idea anyone around him had engineered traffic jams as part of a political vendetta against a Democratic mayor.

A former staffer of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said on Tuesday, May 6, she did not believe that her ex-boss, a woman who has taken much of the blame for apparently politically motivated traffic jams last year, was the main architect of the George Washington Bridge lane closings.

The former staffer, Christina Genovese Renna, also said she was not involved in the closings, which have become known as the "Bridgegate" scandal and have taken a toll on the public image of Christie, a prominent Republican widely viewed as a 2016 White House contender. (Reuters)
