New Jersey lawmakers investigating the traffic jams at the heart of the scandal engulfing Gov. Chris Christie said Friday that federal prosecutors have ordered them to share documents they have gathered.
The Assembly Homeland Security Committee called State Police Superintendent Rick Fuentes to testify after reports that Christie used choppers twice recently to attend his son’s high school baseball games.
A spokeswoman for Chris Christie said the governor and State Republican Committee are reimbursing the state for all personal use of a state police helicopter, which includes two trips to watch his oldest son’s baseball games.
NJ State Police officials said Christie’s use of the helicopter came at no additional taxpayer cost. However, Democratic Party chairman John Wisniewski said it was not for the state police to determine whether it was appropriate.
Frank Lautenberg said he’ll introduce legislation requiring colleges to adopt a code of conduct that prohibits bullying and harassment following Tyler Clementi’s suicide.
