New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Friday that he stood behind Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), following the release of court documents where prosecutors accused Walker of being at the center of a “criminal” campaign finance scheme.

“I have complete faith and confidence in Scott,” Christie said, according to The Bergen Record, adding: “I believe he has great integrity.”

Christie made the comments in New Hampshire, where he attended a campaign event and endorsed Walt Havenstein in the state’s Republican gubernatorial primary. According to the Record, Christie said he spoke with Walker on Friday, and plans to campaign with him this year.

Walker has denied the allegations made in the court documents released this week. In a written statement on his campaign website published Friday, he wrote that “two judges, one state and one federal, reviewed the accusations of partisans within a Democrat District Attorney’s Office and determined their theories have no merit or basis in law.”

“Still, many in the media proceed as though the opinion of the partisan prosecutors is new information and ignore the truths I have stated above,” Walker wrote. “It is not. It is old news that has already been discounted by two judges. No charges. No case.”

  1. And Bridget Anne Kelly will vouch for your assessments of integrity and your stalwart defense of those judgements when they are challenged…as soon as she gets the tire marks off her blouse.

  2. And I’m sure Scott Walker has complete confidence in you.

    Perhaps you two lovebirds can be bunk mates in Federal prison.

  3. Honor among thieves…

  4. I can’t wait for Christie to be indicted. He’ll forget all about lil’ Scotty then.

  5. Well, that would be swell. Which one would be the husband and which one would be the wife?
