Here is what was reported on Fox News:

Newly published emails reportedly suggest New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's office was involved in controversial lane closures in a north Jersey town last fall, giving fresh ammunition to Democrats who claim the closures were political retribution against the local mayor. Though he repeatedly has denied involvement, Christie has faced criticism for months over the bizarre incident in September, when lanes at the George Washington Bridge from Fort Lee, N.J., were closed for four days. He faced accusations that the lanes were blocked in retaliation over Mayor Mark Sokolich's refusal to endorse him for re-election last November. The New York Times reported Wednesday that emails indeed show his deputy chief of staff, Bridget Anne Kelly, suggested closures to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey two weeks before the incident. "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee," she wrote to Christie confidant David Wildstein, according to the Times. At the time, Wildstein was on the Port Authority; he has since resigned. The George Washington Bridge, which connects New Jersey and New York City, is one of the most heavily traveled commuter routes in the country, handling nearly 300,000 vehicles a day. The closures in September caused massive gridlock, leaving commuters stuck in traffic for hours. 

Does the staffer fall far from the Governor?
