Mayor Told Aides of Christie Threat Last Year

New York Times: "Federal authorities in New Jersey have interviewed several witnesses who said the mayor of Hoboken told them in May about a state official's threat to withhold hurricane recovery funds if the mayor did not support a development project favored by the governor... The statements by the witnesses, two of whom are aides to the mayor, Dawn Zimmer, support the account she gave to federal prosecutors on Sunday, and the interviews suggest that prosecutors and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have moved swiftly to investigate her accusations."

Bergen Record: "Former federal prosecutors and veteran defense attorneys said this week that the allegations made by Hoboken's mayor warrant an investigation, but the government will need to find more than just an attempt at political horse trading to make a criminal case."
