Most seek more time in NJ traffic jam subpoenas

Created: 02/03/2014 2:49 AM WHEC.com

Nearly all the 20 people and organizations facing subpoena deadlines in the traffic jam scandal involving Governor Chris Christie's administration have requested more time.
Assemblyman John Wisniewski tells The Associated Press that some extensions of Monday's deadline have been granted.
The subpoena returns likely will be voluminous.
The subpoenas come from a legislative committee seeking to unravel how high up Christie's chain of command an order to block traffic lanes went and whether the operation was meant to punish a Democratic mayor whose town was gridlocked.
The Republican governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate has denied knowing about the planning or execution of the operation. He says he learned members of his circle were involved from press accounts.
Five aides have lost their jobs. The latest resigned Friday.
