Despite TV personality “Dog The Bounty Hunter” joining a lawsuit against New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the embattled governor claimed Wednesday that he is not afraid of the repercussions.

The state’s bail law has received a slew of criticism since it took effect in January, but Republican Gov. Christie said he welcomes the push-back, local radio station New Jersey 101.5 reported Wednesday. The bail reform legislation essentially eliminated money bail and releases defendants before trial based on a risk assessment tool to avoid imprisoning people that simply can’t afford bail costs.
