US-POLITICS-CEO-CHRIS CHRISTIE

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday said he was “embarrassed and humiliated” by the conduct of “some people on my team” over an unfolding political scandal, saying he knew nothing of their activities to apparently punish a local mayor by creating traffic jams in and around his community.

Christie, who apologized to the town of Fort Lee and the residents of the state, said he fired a senior aide at the center of the scandal involving abuse of authority that political commentators suggest could mean bigger problems for the potential Republican presidential candidate in 2016.

“I am stunned by the abject stupidity that was shown here regardless of what the facts ultimately uncover. This was handled in a callous and indifferent way,” he told a news conference about the orchestration of traffic jams near the George Washington Bridge through a transportation agency.
