Report: Christie didn’t report income from Brown loan on federal tax return

The New York Times is reporting that Republican gubernatorial candidate Christopher Christie “failed to report income from a loan he gave in 2007 to a top aide while he was New Jersey’s ranking federal prosecutor on his tax returns.”

While serving as U.S. Attorney, Christie loaned a top deputy, Michele Brown, $46,000 after the career federal prosecutor began experiencing some person financial problems. Christie and his wife, and Brown and her husband are personal friends and neighbors.
