Mayor: Christie Aides Tied Sandy Funds To Project
The mayor of a New Jersey city that sustained severe flooding from Hurricane Sandy claims the Christie administration withheld millions of dollars in recovery grants because she refused to sign off on a politically connected development. Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer told The Associated Press that Gov. Chris Christie’s lieutenant governor and a top community development official said recovery funds would flow to her city if the commercial development went forward. MSNBC first reported her comments Saturday. Kim Guadagno (gwah-DON-yo) pulled her aside at a May event and told her unless the project is approved “we are not going to be able to help you.”
