Taking a Swipe at Former Port Authority Chairman David Samson

Taking a Swipe at Former Port Authority Chairman David Samson
BY ROB DUFFEY
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
OPINION/COMMENTARY

In response to a motion by Port Authority Chairman David Samson to quash an ethics complaint filed by New Jersey Working Families last March, NJWF Director Analilia Mejia issued the following statement:

"David Samson repeatedly involved himself in Port Authority decisions that benefited the clients of his politically connected law firm and presided over an institution rife with cronyism and corruption. It's no surprise Mr. Samson would want to escape responsibility for his ethical lapses on a technicality.

Samson conveniently omits key provisions of the Port Authority Code of Ethics and New Jersey state law that place his actions clearly within the reach of New Jersey's ethics law. The law is clear - as is the fact that David Samson is fighting as hard as he can to hide from public view the real story behind his actions as a public official.
