A close ally of gov. Chris Chrisite's, state Sen. Kevin O'Toole (R-40) will serve as the Senate Republican member of the New Jersey Legislative Select Committee on Investigation, according to the Senate Majority Office.

Christie's senate-level mechanic and cross-the-aisle of Senate President Steve Sweeney's (D-3), O'Toole has a reputation as a fierce inquisitor.

Sweeney and Prieto appointed:

·         Asm. John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex), co-chair;

·         Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, co-chair;

·         Asw. Marlene Caride (D-Bergen/Passaic);

·         Asm. Michael Patrick Carroll (R-Morris/Somerset);
