Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's top staffers are among 20 people and organizations subpoenaed in a widening traffic jam scandal that has shaken his administration.

Christie's chief of staff, chief counsel and top communications aide are among those to receive subpoenas Thursday and Friday. Christie for Governor also was subpoenaed.

The subpoenas seek documents in the investigation of a scheme to close traffic lanes near the George Washington Bridge, causing massive traffic tie-ups. The plot may have been carried out to settle a political score.

Some of those on the list could be called to testify later.

The lawyer representing on person implicated in the plot says his client would testify if granted immunity from prosecution.

Christie has apologized for the traffic jams and said they "blindsided" him. He has called his staff's behavior "stupid."

Here is the complete list of subpoenas related to 'Bridgegate':

Evan Ridley

    Astorino blasts Cuomo over Moreland Commission

    Wednesday, July 30 2014 6:54 PM EDT2014-07-30 22:54:36 GMT
    In 2013, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo created a state panel to investigate public corruption, called the Moreland Commission. But the governor is accused of interfering with investigations and compromising the commission's work. Republican Astorino, who is running against Cuomo, claimed Cuomo didn't hand over evidence to State Police. Astorino wants a special prosecutor to find out if any state and federal laws were broken.

    Archeologists say they've solved a mystery that started with the rebuilding at ground zero. During the excavation at the World Trade Center Site, workers uncovered part of an old ship. No one knew where it came from. Now after years of study, researchers believe the sloop dates back to 1773, built from wood harvested from Pennsylvania, the same kind used to build Independence Hall.

    "A mixed bag": That's how the Straphangers Campaign characterizes New York City subways; some good parts and some bad.

But C trains were also the cleanest in the transit system.Straphangers said the worst subway trains were the IRT's No. 2.
