I’d be more than willing to testify under oath and – and answer any questions and provide any documents, take a lie detector test. Would all of you? Would all of you be willing do that same thing, to testify under oath, to take a lie detector test?
~ Hoboken, NJ, Mayor Dawn Zimmer on UP with Steve Kornacki
From MSNBC, UP with Steve Kornacki
. . . 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 an exclusive interview, Zimmer broke her silence and named Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and Richard Constable, Christie’s community affairs commissioner, as the two officials who delivered messages on behalf of a governor she had long supported.
“The bottom line is, it’s not fair for the governor to hold Sandy funds hostage for the City of Hoboken because he wants me to give back to one private developer,” she said Saturday on UP w/ Steve Kornacki. “… I know it’s very complicated for the public to really understand all of this, but I have a legal obligation to follow the law, to bring balanced development to Hoboken.”
Constable and Christie – through spokespersons – deny Zimmer’s claims.
