TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — "The Family Guy" is taking on a New Jersey political scandal.

A flier sent to Emmy voters asks them to name the show "best animated program." It warns, "Vote for us, or it's time for some traffic problems in Brentwood," a Los Angeles neighborhood where many Emmy voters live.

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.family guy
