TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Newly unredacted documents clear up some of the minor mysteries in the political payback scandal surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The Republican governor has come under scrutiny after redacted documents revealed that his aides engineered traffic jams near the George Washington Bridge last year, apparently as political retribution.

The unredacted documents show that the person who joked about feeling "badly about the kids" stuck in the traffic jam was Bridget Kelly, a Christie aide who has since been fired.

And the person who joked that "they are the children of Buono voters," referring to Christie's challenger in last year's gubernatorial election, was David Wildstein. He has since resigned from a key post at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversees the bridge.
