EAST NEWARK – Gov. Chris Christie refused Thursday to weigh in on allegations swirling around U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez.
The governor said during a campaign event that his years as a prosecutor have taught him not to speak publically on issues until evidence is produced. Allegations have been swirling that Menendez solicited underage prostitutes during trips to the Dominican Republic.
“You never know what the real story is until the prosecutors have the opportunity to lay out their evidence,” Christie said. “The fact is that all we have right now is the search warrant.”
The governor said he “knows how complex these things are because [he’s] worked the inside of them for seven years” and would defer commenting on the subject.
“I think it would be inappropriate for anybody to start giving opinions about that right now. I’m certainly not going to be one of those people,” he said.
“I think the fact is Sen. Menendez will deal with these issues as he sees fit moving forward and the prosecutors who are investigating this will do that as well and then we’ll see where the chips fall,” Christie said.

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
