"I had no knowledge or involvement in this issue, in its planning or its execution, and I am stunned by the abject stupidity that was shown here," he said in a press conference. "Regardless of what the facts ultimately uncover, this was handled in a callous and indifferent way, and is not the way this administration has conducted itself over the last four years, and not the way it will conduct itself over the next four."

"I will do everything within my power to assure the people of New Jersey of that, and I thank them for their willingness to consider my apology on behalf of this government," he added. "In the end, I have 65,000 people working for me every day, and I cannot know what each one of them is doing at every minute, but that doesn't matter, I'm ultimately responsible for what they do."
