Two of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s former key allies were found guilty Friday on all counts for their roles in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal. Christie’s ex-deputy chief of staff, Bridget Anne Kelly, and his former top Port Authority official, Bill Baroni, had faced nine counts of conspiracy and fraud stemming from the scheme to block access to the George Washington Bridge as a means to punish Democratic Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich for not endorsing Christie’s re-election bid. … In reacting to the verdict, Christie reiterated that he didn’t know about the plot, even as several witnesses said during the trial that he was aware of the plan before, during and after.
