WASHINGTON (CNN) - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is wrapped up in a political scandal.
Emails surfaced Wednesday suggesting some of his top appointees orchestrated traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge as political payback for a mayor who didn't support the governor.
The move snarled traffic for days and potentially delayed emergency services.
Republicans in Washington are weighing in on the scandal.
"I think what we should do, for those of us who are watching, is allow that process in New Jersey to move forward," said Sen. Marco Rubio, R- FL. "I understand the legislature there is looking at it. But, I'm just not going to comment on something I don't know anything about."
One state lawmaker is calling for a federal investigation into the allegations.
Christie said Wednesday he was misled by staff and said people involved will be held responsible for their actions.
