Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-Morris Plains), the Republican State Chairman, wants Gov. Jon Corzine to disclose documents related to his lobbying activities while running Goldman Sachs.
“After failing to make good on his promises to be fully transparent with New Jersey’s finances, Governor Corzine finds himself with his back to the wall in this campaign and has suddenly rediscovered his interest in disclosure,” Webber said. “The governor should follow his own calls for disclosure and immediately release all of his activities in lobbying the Clinton Administration to change its position toward Monthly Income Preferred Shares (MIPS).”
Webber is alleging that Corzine’s lobbying activities, during a time before he was a candidate for public office, “benefitted him personally as an executive at Goldman Sachs.”
“Governor Corzine needs to explain the way in which he affected federal tax law to protect the benefits he enjoyed,” said Webber.
