The NY Post reports that the Bridge Gate jury has reached a verdict:
Two former aides to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were found guilty on Friday of shutting down entrance lanes to the George Washington Bridge to punish the mayor of Fort Lee for refusing to endorse the governor’s re-election.The tens of thousands of people, including my brother, who were tied up in a massive traffic jam because of these idiots might feel a little better now.
It took the federal jury nearly five days to convict Bridget Anne Kelly, Christie’s former deputy chief of staff, and Bill Baroni, the governor’s appointee at the Port Authority, as part of in the biggest political corruption scandal to rock New Jersey in years.
They were found guilty of all seven charges against them, including conspiracy to misuse Port Authority Resources and infringing on citizen’s civil rights. The maximum charge carries 20 years.
