Governor Corzine’s campaign does not want to let the story about Republican gubernatorial nominee Chris Christie’s loan to former U.S. Attorney Office subordinate Michele Brown end with her resignation.
Less than an hour after the news broke of her resignation, Corzine spokeswoman Elisabeth Smith released the following statement:
“Michele Brown’s resignation today does nothing to put to rest questions about Christie’s conduct both in and outside of the U.S. Attorney’s office. Whether it was illegally laying the groundwork for his gubernatorial campaign from the U.S. Attorney’s office with the help of Karl Rove, maintaining a secret financial relationship with the number two at the U.S. Attorney’s office during his campaign, or rewarding political cronies with millions of dollars in no-bid contracts, Christie still must answer to serious legal and ethical questions. He can start by demanding the immediate release of public documents from his tenure as U.S. Attorney as requested by the Corzine campaign.”
