Christie heads to shore to meet with Sandy-struck homeowners as traffic-jam probe continues

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is meeting with homeowners affected by Superstorm Sandy even as the Legislature prepares to issue new subpoenas in its investigation into the state's traffic jam scandal.
Thursday's vote by the legislature is a formality. The Assembly already has tapped Reid Schar, the federal prosecutor who helped convict former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich of corruption, to aid in the investigation.
Assemblyman John Wisniewsk , who's leading the investigation, says the new subpoenas will seek emails and text messages from key Christie aides.
The Republican governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate hasn't been implicated in the scandal. He'll meet with the homeowners Thursday.
