Why Did Governor Chris Christie Fire Aide Bridget Anne Kelly?

Chris Christie fired his top aide Bridget Anne Kelly amidst the traffic scandal that alleges the governor fixed New Jersey elections in his favor.

Before the announcement of aide Bridget Anne Kelly being fired was made, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie apologized to his constituents for the scandal:

“I come out here today to apologize to the people of New Jersey. I apologize to the people of Fort Lee, and I apologize to the members of the state legislature. I am embarrassed and humiliated by the conduct of some of the people on my team. There’s no doubt in my mind that the conduct that they exhibited is completely unacceptable and showed a lack of respect for their appropriate role in government and for the people that were trusted to serve.”

The governor, who was rumored to have interest in running for president in 2016, then stated that he fired Bridget Anne Kelly. Christie claims that he fired Kelly, the deputy chief of staff, for lying to him about the bridge closures.

The governor, who was praised for his actions just a year ago after a hurricane hit the Jersey Shore, is now under heavy scrutiny as many believe he was involved in the bridge closures.

Reports of e-mail exchanges between Christie’s staff and the Port Authority reveal that the traffic jam was planned in order to hold of voters from the opposition. In the e-mails, Kelly wrote to former top executive of the Port Authority David Wildstein:

“Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.”

“Got it,” Wildstein replied.

While Gov. Chris Christie maintains that he had no involvement in the scandal and had no idea that members of his staff were involved, many speculate that he had knowledge of the incident as it took him over eight hours to form a response once the scandal was revealed.
