TRENTON, N.J.— A New Jersey Democrat leading the investigation into traffic jams orchestrated by Gov. Chris Christie’s aides says his committee will look into a new allegation of political retribution by the Republican administration.
Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Assemblyman John Wisniewski says Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s allegation that Superstorm Sandy recovery funds were withheld from her town because she wouldn’t support a politically connected real estate development is a serious new charge.
The governor’s office vigorously denies the mayor’s claims.
Christie spokesman Colin Reed says the administration helped Zimmer secure aid after the storm severely flooded the Hudson River town.
Four people close to Christie lost their jobs after a top aide gave the go-ahead to close lanes to the George Washington Bridge as apparent political payback.
