Port Authority Chairman David Sampson announced his resignation in reaction to New Jersey Governor Christie’s self-appointed investigation.

In addition to clearing Christie of wrongdoing, the report also recommended several reforms for the Port Authority.

“I received a call from David Samson, who informed me that after reviewing the Mastro report, that he completely supports the recommendations laid out for the Port Authority and that he believes the best way to start a new era at the Port Authority is with new leadership,” Christie said at a press conference on Friday. “In line with that belief, David tendered his resignation to me this afternoon, effective immediately. I want to thank him for his service and his friendship.”
