'Family Guy' flier spoofs New Jersey political scandal and Christie in plea to Emmy voters
Reported by: Associated Press

"The Family Guy" is taking on a New Jersey political scandal.
The warning is a reference to lane closures last year at the heart of the scandal and a now-infamous email about them. A since-fired aide to Gov. Chris Christie wrote before the closures, "It's time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee," the New Jersey town that saw days of traffic jams. Federal prosecutors are investigating.
On the flier, character Peter Griffin wears a tie and looks almost governor-like.
