Christie Fields 'Bridgegate' Question At Flemington Town Hall

Posted: Updated:
FLEMINGTON, N.J. -

It's been a rough few months for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. But the Republican isn't letting the Bridgegate scandal stop him from holding town hall meetings.

The governor held one in Flemington Thursday. He says the gatherings help keep him in tune with what average citizens are thinking.

In recent town halls, protestors have disrupted the meeting over the bridge scandal and other alleged wrongdoing by the governor's aides.

But for the first time a resident questioned the governor about the plot.

In response to the question, the governor said the aide fired for lying about her involvement in a political payback scandal would have been dismissed even if she'd told the truth.

The governor's office released an 8-minute video of the exchange on YouTube, along with a partial transcript.
