Alright, here is what we know…
According to a document obtained exclusively by NJN News, Chris Christie took out a $46,000 mortgage for Michele Brown in October 2007.
Brown was then the number four person in the U.S. Attorney’s Office under Christie. That means he was her boss. Today she is the number two person in that office.
Last week Christie was on vacation down the shore with his family, so this week he is back on the campaign trail. We asked him about this loan, and he confirmed it. He says there was nothing unusual about it.
Brown came to Christie because she needed money after her second husband lost his job. She is still making monthly payments to Christie and his wife of $499.22, and is expected to keep doing so through the length of the mortgage which extends through 2017. Christie also denies that there is anything inappropriate or unethical with the number two person in the U.S. Attorney’s office literally owing him ( in this case, money ).
