Corzine campaign Communications Director Sean Darcy said that Chris Christie’s failure to disclose his $46,000 loan to friend and U.S. Attorney’s office staffer Michele Brown is part of a “worsening pattern” of Christie “hiding information that the public should know since he's seeking the state's highest office.”
“We have learned in the past week that while he was United States Attorney he held secret talks with Karl Rove plotting his political campaign at a time when those activities violated federal law. He has refused to release basic information such as his schedules, travel and budgets while United States Attorney and now we learn he not only failed to disclose the loan as required by law, but he failed to pay taxes on the income he earned on the loan,” said Darcy in a statement.
Christie addressed the controversy this afternoon in a campaign stop in Cherry Hill. PolitickerNJ.com will post his comments when they become available.
Governor Corzine crticized Christie over the loan to PolitickerNJ.com earlier today.
