TRENTON, N.J. - August 23, 2009 Democrats have called into question whether Christie still
wields influence in his old U.S. Attorney's office - which isn't
allowed - after discovering that he lent a colleague there $46,000
and failed to report the loan or pay taxes on it.
Political science professor Brigid Harrison says the loan has
damaged Christie's credibility on a signature issue: ethics.
The Republican Governors Association and the Christie campaign
say the last two weeks don't change the consistent lead the
Republican has enjoyed so far or the fact that more New Jerseyans
think the state is off course than headed in the right direction.
