Hoboken Mayor Accuses Chris Christie Team of Holding Hurricane Sandy Relief Money HostageHardly a week has passed since Bridgeghazi and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is under fire again. This time, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer is alleging that Christie’s staff threatened to withhold Hurricane Sandy relief money from Hoboken unless she approved a redevelopment plan favored by the governor.   Just moments ago on Up with Steve Kornacki, Zimmer outlined a chain of events in which she claims that two Christie officials, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and Richard Constable, approached her on behalf of the governor last year to urge her to move ahead with a lucrative development plan for a 19-block stretch of Hoboken. According to Zimmer, she was told that hurricane relief money for Hoboken would be contingent on her approval of the project.
