Misuse of E-ZPass Data by Port Authority Officials? Pallone Calls for Investigation

Misuse of E-ZPass Data by Port Authority Officials? Pallone Calls for Investigation
BY CHRISTINE BRENNAN
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06), the Ranking Member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder requesting that the U.S. Department of Justice conduct an independent review to determine whether E-ZPass data of New Jersey drivers was repeatedly accessed by officials at the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) without proper authority and, potentially, for political purposes. In the letter, Pallone made clear that any such actions violate New Jersey law and that, since New Jersey’s Attorney General is appointed by Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) and has not announced any plans to investigate these allegations, an independent review was necessary at this time.

“It is our duty as public servants to protect the public trust,” Pallone said in the letter. “These incidents seem to demonstrate the exact opposite, showing a remarkable abuse of power and violation of privacy.”
