Ex-Christie campaign manager to plead the Fifth, lawyer says: 'via Blog this'
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's (R) former campaign manager will plead the Fifth Amendment when he is asked about his role in an apparent plot to create a traffic jam in Fort Lee, N.J., according to a filing from his lawyer.
The campaign manager, Bill Stepien, was one of two people disciplined for his actions related to the access lane closures, shortly after the apparent scheme was disclosed in a series of e-mails and text messages. While then-deputy Christie chief of staff Bridget Kelly was fired, Christie told Stepien to end his contract with the Republican Governors Association, which Christie leads, and not run for state party chairman.
