Highlights from the 'Bridgegate' e-mails
Emails released as a result of a subpoena on New Jersey's "Bridgegate" scandal have linked one of Gov. Chris Christie's top staffers to the controversial closure of multiple lanes on the George Washington Bridge in September that led to massive traffic problems in the town of Fort Lee, N.J.
