Documents: Christie staff jokes about causing rabbi traffic problems

Newly released documents are raising more questions about the scandal surrounding New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's administration.

According to the previously redacted documents, David Wildstein, then a top executive at the Port Authority, sent a photo of a New Jersey rabbi to Bridget Anne Kelley, then a top aide to Christie.

Along with the photo, he sent her a note that read, "he has officially pissed me off."

Kelly responded: "clearly," and "we cannot cause traffic problems in front of his house can we?"

Wildstein: "Flights to Tel Aviv all mysteriously delayed."

Six days earlier, Kelly sent the now-infamous email to Wildstein saying:

"Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee"

And that's what apparently set the lane closings at the George Washington Bridge and this scandal in motion.
