Embattled NJ Governor Christie cancels inaugural party due to snowstorm

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, whose administration has been caught in a traffic-related scandal for the past few weeks, canceled his inaugural celebration at Ellis Island on Tuesday night due to a winter storm. Christie, who easily won a second term in November, did not cancel the day’s other events: an inaugural service at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark and a swearing-in ceremony in the state capital of Trenton. The political tempest erupted this month with the release of emails that seemed to show aides purposely snarling traffic in Fort Lee, New Jersey, by closing access lanes to the George Washington Bridge linking New Jersey and New York. Last week, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer, a Democrat and frequent Christie ally, claimed the governor’s administration had linked the release of Superstorm Sandy relief funds to approval of a Hoboken development project.
