Legislative Select Committee on Investigation Co-Chairs, Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg and Assemblyman John Wisniewski, released the following statement Friday on the Governor’s press conference during which he discussed his office’s internal report surrounding the investigation into the GWB lane closures and the abuse of government power. The governor also announced the resignation of Port Authority Chairman David Samson:
“Today’s developments are yet another indication that this investigation is far from over.
“The Governor’s top appointee at the Port Authority refuses to be interviewed for the administration’s report and then resigns the day after it comes out, leaving us, once again with far more questions than answers.
“The committee will not allow this one-sided review to color the ongoing investigation as we expect it was intended. Any credible examination of the lane closures should be focused on uncovering the facts, not exonerating the governor or anyone else.
“The residents of NJ deserve to know why access lanes to the busiest bridge in the country were shut down for days last fall and we remain committed to finding those answers and following the facts wherever they lead.”
