Democrats blast report clearing Christie on jams

Thursday - 3/27/2014, 4:20pm  ET

NEW YORK (AP) -- Democrats are blasting a new report commissioned by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's office that clears him of any involvement in a political retribution scandal.

State Sen. Loretta Weinberg says it "raises more questions than answers" about lane closures that led to massive traffic jams last year.

She notes that the taxpayer-funded lawyer hired by Christie's office to produce the report did not have access to the "main protagonists" in the case.

Weinberg is co-chair of a legislative committee investigating the same issues. Christie's administration has criticized that probe as biased.

The Democratic National Committee says the report is "nothing more than an expensive sham."
