If Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni are guilty and that appears to be the situation [View all]

so is Crispie Christie

Two former allies of Governor Christie were “loyal lieutenants” who used their government powers to punish political targets.

In a summation lasting about four hours, Assistant U.S. Attorney Lee Cortes said that Kelly, the governor’s former deputy chief of staff, and Baroni, the governor’s former top executive appointee at the Port Authority, “shared an intense commitment to the political success of Governor Chris Christie.”

“They saw themselves as his loyal lieutenants who were free to use their government jobs to launch political attacks and who never attempted to separate politics from their jobs in public service,” Cortes said.

Kelly’s attorney, Michael Critchley, is scheduled to make his closing arguments on Monday. Jurors are expected to begin their deliberations Tuesday.

Baroni and Kelly are accused of conspiring to reduce access to the bridge in Fort Lee to punish the borough’s mayor for not endorsing Christie’s reelection. The pair, both 44, are charged with conspiracy, fraud and violating the civil rights of Fort Lee residents to travel freely.

Although Wildstein admitted to being the mastermind of the plan, he told the court that he was knowingly aided by Kelly and Baroni.
That is all - fingers crossed!!!
