By The Auditor, NJ Advance Media for

The Auditor always loves a good fact-check, so when Gov. Chris Christie took aim at 2017 candidate for governor Phil Murphy over pensions, it was clear that merriment would soon abound.

Addressing the Morris County Chamber of Commerce on Monday, the governor disparaged Murphy as “another multimillionaire Goldman-Sachs executive,” and, in a clear reference to defeated Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine, Christie added, “because that worked so well the first time.”

The source of Christie’s ire was Murphy’s recent interview with NJ Advance Media, in which the Democratic candidate argued the state must first meet its funding commitments before pension reforms can be undertaken.
