STATEMENT OF DEMOCRATIC PARTY CHAIR JOHN CURRIE CONCERNING LATEST BRIDGEGATE REVELATIONS


(Trenton) — New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Currie issued the following statement in regard to emails released today that show a top Christie administration official was directly involved in the closure of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge -- an act of political retribution that endangered thousands in northern New Jersey:

“These emails demonstrate that under Governor Christie, vindictive political motivations were allowed to trump any regard for public safety.

“As hearings into this matter continue, Governor Christie owes us an explanation for why his core team appears to have such disdain for the public trust and how they could seriously abuse the power of the governor's office right under his nose.

"This time, I suggest that the governor try a new approach when answering questions: honesty."
