It wasn't that long ago that everything seemed to be going right for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. He was the darling of conservatives across the country, he was a star in the media, and his approval rating in his own state was booming. But the Bridgegate scandal, which for a time seemed to be effectively quashed, may bring him down yet. The scandal, for anyone who doesn't remember, started when high-ranking members of Christie's staff conspired to block traffic on the George Washington Bridge, just to punish the mayor of Fort Lee, NJ for not supporting the governor.
