Wisniewski & Weinberg Statement on Christie Office’s Internal Report

March 27, 2014

Legislative Select Committee on Investigation Co-Chairs, Assemblyman John Wisniewski and Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, released the following statement Thursday on the Governor's internal report surrounding the investigation into the GWB lane closures and the abuse of government power:

"Lawyers hired by and paid by the Christie administration itself to investigate the governor's office who then say the governor and most of his office did nothing wrong will not be the final word on this matter.

"The people of New Jersey need a full accounting of what happened. This review has deficiencies that raise questions about a lack of objectivity and thoroughness.

"We will continue to pursue our investigation wherever the facts lead. We want a full accounting of the lane closings and any related abuses of power and what can be done to ensure this doesn't happen again."
