NJ Secretary of State Car's Mileage and Fueling Reports Lead to Questions

June 21, 2005

TRENTON, NJ – New Jersey Secretary of State Regena Thomas' state-owned car was driven nearly 8,000 miles last year during three months when she spent most of her time on vacation or on leave, state records show, according to an article in the Newark Star-Ledger newspaper. The mileage records, obtained by The Star-Ledger through the Open Public Records Act, covered a period when Thomas took five weeks of vacation to "recharge her batteries" and four weeks of unpaid personal leave to work on the presidential campaign of Democratic Sen. John Kerry. Thomas, however, said she does not drive her state car at all, and said the records, which include monthly mileage reports her office filed with the state, are "incorrect."
