Stephen Colbert highlighted PolitiFact New Jersey's fact-check of Chris Christie on the Colbert Report on Tuesday night.

Referring to the in-depth (but tongue-in-cheek!) fact-check of Christie's claim that he watched Scooby Doo when he was 4, Colbert said "a new scandal has exploded that could derail Christie's ambitions. He was recently caught on tape blatantly lying to one of his constituents about his past."
