Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) issued the following statement today in response to charges against former New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner Jamie Fox:

“Let me start by saying that I cannot possibly imagine Jamie doing anything illegal.  I have known him for years to be a person of the highest integrity – the ultimate statesman.

“Today’s allegations against him come as a shock to me and completely out of character with the man I admire and respect.

“Unfortunately in today’s 24-hour news cycle there is always a quick rush to judgement in the court of public opinion.  It is only fair that we remember that Jamie Fox is innocent until proven otherwise.”
