Bridgegate Plotter Gets No Jail Time

As expected, the former Port Authority executive who admitted to plotting Bridgegate, the scandal that tarnished New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s political career and helped seal convictions for two others involved in the case, got no jail time yesterday at his sentencing in Federal court. David Wildstein was handed three years’ probation, 500 hours of community service and fined $10,000. He also cannot work with any government agency. Wildstein testified against former Port Authority executive Bill Baroni and Christie’s deputy chief of staff Bridget-Anne Kelly about their involvement in the traffic jams that turned Fort Lee into a parking lot in 2013, when the mayor failed to support Christie’s re-election campaign. Baroni and Kelly were both found guilty of fraud and conspiracy last year. Baroni got 24 months in prison while Kelly got 18-months. Both are free on bail while appealing their convictions.
