New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: “This Sharia Law Business Is Crap”
by Jorge Rivas

New Jersey’s governor Chris Christie has been known to spread a 
conservative agenda across the state. But a week ago he surprised both 
his supporters and his opponents when he defended his appointment of 
Muslim-American lawyer Sohail Mohammed to the state’s superior court. 
Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall flagged the gruff gov’s tirade 
against bigotry in his blog today.

“It’s just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of 
his religious background,” Chrstie said at a press conference last week.

When asked by a reporter about the threat of Sharia laws, Christie 
called the complaints “crap.” “Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at 
all, it’s crazy!” he said at the press conference. “The guy is an 
American citizen!,” he yelled. “Sharia Law business is just crap.” Watch 
the show for yourself above.

According to a New York Times story back when Christie first nominated 
Mohammed, in January, the defense attorney represented many people 
rounded up by overzealous law enforcement after 9/11. In his remarks 
last week, Christie pointed out that “there were lots of people 
inappropriately detained by the FBI post-9/11” and that Mohammed played 
a critical role in creating productive relationships between law 
enforcement and Muslim American communities.

Mohammed would be the just second Muslim American judge to serve in New 
Jersey’s Superior Court, according to the Times.
