New Subpoenas Seek To Unravel In NJ Scandal

Chris_Christie_2013TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Seventeen people involved in New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s administration or his re-election campaign are receiving subpoenas for documents that could shed light on who was behind a plot to create traffic jams and whether it was to settle a political score.

The legislative panel investigating the plot will release a list of those subpoenaed once all the documents are served, probably Friday.

On that list is Matt Mowers, who worked on Christie’s re-election campaign before being hired as executive director of the New Hampshire Republican party.

The subpoenas will seek text messages and emails related to the traffic scandal.

Christie, meanwhile, was headed to Camden on Friday for a ceremony for the newest member of the state Supreme Court. He is set to be in Florida for a weekend of fundraising as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
