In a glimmer of good news for Chris Christie, the daughter of a 91-year-old woman who died while the governor's aides were using the George Washington Bridge as a political plaything, slowing emergency response times in the process, has no hard feelings. "I honestly believe it was just her time," she said. "We want to stay out of it. It's not political," the woman added. But for the record: "She voted for Christie." Hear that, Christie staff? Stand down.
