Mayor Says Christie Held Sandy Relief Money Hostage

Steve Kornacki: "Two senior members of Gov. Chris Christie's administration warned a New Jersey mayor earlier this year that her town would be starved of hurricane relief money unless she approved a lucrative redevelopment plan favored by the governor, according to the mayor and emails and personal notes she shared with MSNBC."

"In this account -- supported by email, public records and Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer's own diary entries -- Christie's inner circle was willing to cut off devastated constituents, muscle a friendly mayor and arrange public funds to finance a study for a project the governor supported."

Don't forget to listen to Kornacki's deep dive on the Christie scandal on the Political Wire podcast. It's just amazing.
