New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie apologized yesterday for lane closures on The George Washington Bridge that appear to have been ordered for retribution against his political opponents. Christie fired two aides he said were responsible for ordering the closures but did not take responsibility himself. Federal investigators and the FBI are investigating the lane closures that snarled traffic and delayed emergency responders. The case has highlighted the tension and influence of politics at the bi-state Port Authority.
