Christie Staffer Resigns Amidst Bridgegate Probe

Christina Renna is the second person to leave the governor’s office.

Politico reports that Chris Christie’s aid, Christina Renna, has resigned from the administration. She has been subpoenaed in connection with the Bridgegate scandal and related probes, though she hadn’t been accused of wrongdoing.

“This reflects a decision I have been considering since shortly after the election,” Renna said in a statement provided by her attorney, Henry Klingeman of Newark, N.J. Christie was elected to a second term last November.

“I have spent almost four years working hard for a governor I continue to respect and admire. The transition from term one to term two is a natural time to pursue an opportunity in the private sector,” Renna said.

Renna is the second person to leave the administration since the scandal broke.
