By Sascha Brodsky NEWARK, N.J. (Reuters) - A former top aide and a former ally to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges related to the George Washington Bridge closure scandal that has stained the prominent Republican's image. Bridget Kelly, his former deputy chief of staff, and Bill Baroni, former deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, face a nine-count federal indictment that includes conspiracy and wire fraud. David Wildstein, a former senior Christie appointee to the Port Authority, pleaded guilty on Friday to conspiracy stemming from the political scandal known as "Bridgegate." The charges are the first stemming from the September 2013 shutdown in Fort Lee, New Jersey, of access lanes to the world's busiest bridge which spans the Hudson River between Fort Lee and upper Manhattan in New York City.
