The investigation into “Bridgegate” shot to the top of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Thursday through a subpoena to Executive Director Patrick Foye, as lawmakers dig in for an extensive review of why Gov. Chris Christie’s subordinates ordered lane closures near the George Washington Bridge.
The Newark Star-Ledger reported early Friday that Mr. Foye will comply with the subpoena — one of 20 that went flying this week as part of a fresh investigation into the scandal.
Bridge Anne Kelly, who was fired as Mr. Christie’s deputy chief of staff for ordering the September traffic problems in Fort Lee, N.J., through correspondence with the Port Authority, is among the people who have been subpoenaed, according to the Ledger’s sources.
Mr. Christie, a likely GOP contender for president in 2016, has apologized for the traffic jams in Fort Lee but said he knew nothing about the scheme, which may have been political payback against the town’s Democratic mayor.
