Gov. Chris Christie’s back must be feeling pretty good.

The Auditor has learned that when a spot opened on the state Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Christie chose someone he knows well: his personal chiropractor, David Allen.

Allen has since been confirmed. But the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is tasked with vetting candidates for various boards and commissions, didn’t know Allen had the governor as a client.

“I guess in the interests of full disclosure, the governor could have told us,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Nicholas Scutari (D-Union). “Why not? He got his personal driver on the parole board,” referring to Christie’s campaign driver, Allen Delvento, who earns $116,500 for a spot on the parole board.
