Christopher J. Christie, the Republican challenging Gov. Jon S. Corzine, failed to report income from a loan he gave in 2007 to a top aide while he was New Jersey’s ranking federal prosecutor on his tax returns, Mr. Christie’s campaign staff disclosed on Tuesday.
Mr. Christie also failed to report the $46,000 loan as required under federal and state ethics rules.
The aide, Michele A. Brown, borrowed the money from Mr. Christie while he was United States attorney for New Jersey and she was his executive assistant and counsel, according to mortgage records in Morris County.
Is that a governor’s exhaling I hear?
