NEW YORK (AP) — Democrats are blasting a new report commissioner by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's office that clears him of any involvement in a political retribution scandal.
State Sen. Loretta Weinberg says it "raises more questions than answers" about lane closures that led to massive traffic jams last year.
She notes that the taxpayer-funded lawyer hired by Christie's office to produce the report did not have access to the "main protagonists" in the case.
Weinberg is co-chair of a legislative committee investigating the same issues. Christie's administration has criticized that probe as biased.
The Democratic National Committee says the report is "nothing more than an expensive sham."
