    Two former officials linked to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's office were found guilty on all charges Friday in connection with the closure of lanes in 2013 on the George Washington Bridge in an apparent act of political retribution, the fallout for which has come to be known as Bridgegate.

    Bridget Anne Kelly, the former deputy chief of staff to Christie, and Bill Baroni, the former deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, both faced seven counts of various charges including conspiracy, fraud, and civil rights deprivation.
    The verdict is a major setback in Christie's political career, following a controversy that spans nearly three years and put a significant dent in the Garden State Republican's presidential ambitions. Christie is heading planning for Republican nominee Donald Trump's transition if he wins the presidency.

    More corruption in government?

    Say it ain't so.

    So what are the odds all the little people will take the fall and the Pills Berry Dough Boy escapes it all?

    So they fire a few people and then all is well with the world again.

    Interesting that Trump, who has been in scandals such as paying off attorneys to drop prosecution against his fraudulent university, chose a VP who was found using campaign funds to pay his mortgage and buy a car, hired Roger Ailes (who has a LONG history of sexual misconduct going back to Nixon rejecting his aid because of it).....also has Chris Christie as the head of planning for his campaign.

    Trump is not only a corrupt man, but surrounds himself with corrupt and amoral people.
