(Trenton, NJ) -- There are new details emerging about lane closures allegedly ordered by an aide of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. The "Bergen Record" reports the September lane closures on the George Washington Bridge delayed emergency responders in four cases. In one of the situations, a 91-year-old woman died. Emails emerged Wednesday that a member of Christie's staff allegedly created the traffic problem as political retribution. Christie said he was misled by a member of his staff and that he's outraged by this quote, "inappropriate" conduct. He says people will be held responsible for their actions.
