Editor's note: The convicted defendants in the George Washington Bridge ramp closing scandal, widely known as 'Bridgegate,' included Bill Baroni, a former deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Baroni was appointed by NJ Gov. Chris Christie to the post in 2010. News organizations are calling Baroni either an ally or an aide to Christie, but it is unclear how much contact he had with Christie as a direct aide, political or otherwise. - Andrew
