Another Victim Of Bridgegate

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Just when it seemed like the whole bridgegate scandal was dying down, this weekend a letter from the attorney of Christie appointee David Wildstein reopened the floodgates again.

The letter claimed that Governor Christie did have knowledge of the George Washington Bridge lane closures and didn’t tell the truth during his nearly two-hour long press conference. The Christie administration responded with an email painting Wildstein as an aggressive loose cannon going all the way back to high school.

The committee investigating the lane closures received the first batch of subpoenaed information yesterday as the deadline approached at 5:00pm. Now we have found out that yet another Christie aide has resigned.

Christina Genovese Renna resigned saying that she was ready to pursue new challenges in corporate America.

Renna was the director of departmental relations and reported to fired aide Bridget Anne Kelly. She worked in the Christie administration since 2010 and previously was with the South Jersey Chamber of Commerce.

So far the only public mention of Renna was an email to Bridget Anne Kelly explaining how angry Ft. Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich was over the GWB lane closures.

So to break it down, we now have a back and forth between Wildstein’s attorney and the governor, another resignation and new subpoenaed information delivered to the committee yesterday.

Political consultant Jeanette Hoffman and PolitickerNJ writer Matt Arco chimed in to discuss these latest developments.

“What this did have a result of was firing off a media storm Friday right before the Super Bowl and all national media was coming to NJ, so to me it looks like a legal tactic from the attorney of a client who is looking for immunity from prosecution,” Hoffman said.

Arco went on to discuss the allegations against Wildstein’s character.

“I think this kind of digging up and almost trashing people that have something negative to say isn’t really new for the administration, but at the same time I think it’s fair to say that they’re probably not as close as the accounts and press have said,” he said.

Now many people feel if Christie can continue this back and forth battle with no real solid proof that he actually knew about the closures, than the governor will end up looking stronger than ever.
