One of two people involved in the George Washington Bridge political payback scandal ensnaring Governor Chris Christie's administration arrived in court Tuesday amid a crush of media and surrounded by protesters. Fired Christie staffer Bridget Anne Kelly did not answer questions as she entered court. But she and another Christie aide will try to persuade a judge not to force them to turn over text messages and other private communications to New Jersey legislators investigating the scandal. The subpoenas seek documents involving the intentional blocking of traffic near the George Washington Bridge in September, which created hours long backups in nearby Fort Lee, apparently to as political payback against the town's Democratic mayor.
