NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's administration is now facing an investigation into how it paid for a $1 billion repair of a New Jersey bridge, according to sources.
Two people said the investigation deals with whether funding for the Pulaski Skyway repairs was misrepresented in bond documents by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
A person familiar with the investigation but not authorized to discuss it publicly and speaking on the condition of anonymity told The Associated Press that the Manhattan district attorney's office and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating whether the possible misrepresentations amount to securities law violations.
And a government official with direct knowledge says that the district attorney's office is investigating.
The Port Authority says attorneys for both sides negotiated the agreement.
Spokespeople for Christie, the SEC and district attorney's office declined to comment.
