New Jersey Working Families State Director Sue Altman released the following statement in response to yesterday’s task force report:
“The task force’s new report unearthed a staggering level of corruption unprecedented in New Jersey history. George Norcross, his brothers and his companies conspired to cheat taxpayers of hundreds of millions of dollars – and they did it with the full cooperation of the Christie administration and legislative leaders.
“This is Trenton at its worst. Norcross lied to the Legislature, and no one dared ask him hard questions or hold him accountable.
“It’s time for law enforcement to step in and provide justice for New Jersey taxpayers. If politicians could be charged for taking cash out of coffee cups, then political insiders who robbed taxpayers of hundreds of millions of dollars need to explain their actions to a jury.”
