Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement in reaction to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's comments regarding his administrations involvement in the closure of traffic lanes at the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, NJ last September:
The actions by Governor Christie's administration that resulted in the lane closures on the nation's busiest bridge are disgraceful and represent the worst type of political retaliation and abuse of public trust. Governor Christie must come clean, take full responsibility and explain in detail exactly what occurred. Today's press conference served to raise more questions than it answered. All of the facts surrounding this incident must be put on the table immediately and any and all appropriate actions should be taken to hold everyone involved accountable.
