An aide to Chris Christie who was subpoenaed in the investigation of the George Washington Bridge scandal resigned on Friday, according to media reports.

In a statement published by NBC late Sunday, Christina Genovese Renna said the resignation “reflects a decision I have been considering since shortly after the election.”

As the state director of departmental relations, Renna reported to Bridget Anne Kelly, Christie’s fired deputy chief of staff who was intimately involved in the lane closures on the bridge.

Renna is one of 17 people tied to Christie who’s been subpoenaed by the legislative committee leading the probe of the lane closures.
