The aide fired by Gov. Chris Christie as an investigation widened into traffic tie-ups she orchestrated, had been part of his administration from the start and has a solid background in New Jersey politics. Christie said Thursday that Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly had been fired "because she lied to me."Recently released emails show Kelly gave the go-ahead for lane closures approaching the George Washington Bridge that snarled traffic in the New Jersey community of Fort Lee, slowed emergency vehicles and delayed school buses the first week of classes.
