TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The co-chairs of the legislative committee investigating the Port Authority have discussed whether they want to look into the possibility of ethics violations stemming from the relationship between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Christie has come under fire for attending Cowboys games in Jones’ owners box. Christie, a possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate, was televised Sunday hugging Jones after the Cowboys’ playoff win over the Detroit Lions.
As CBS2’s Alice Gainer reported, the failed high-five and the awkward embrace by Christie, Jones and a third man initially just drew chuckles when they were caught on camera. But more serious concerns have now been raised.
