    Much to Gov. Chris Christie’s chagrin, Bridgegate just won’t blow over. New Jersey state legislators have issued 18 new subpoenas, on top of the 20 sent last month, to members of Christie’s office and the Port Authority. Christie himself is being subpoenaed along with the state police aviation unit, which could provide insight on the governor’s helicopter travel during the George Washington Bridge lane closures. Still, the investigations may not be causing long-term damage to Christie.

Christie has apparently already raised $1.5 million this month.
