Christie Lieutenant Vehemently Denies Latest Corruption Claim

By
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie speaks about his knowledge of a traffic study that snarled traffic at the George Washington Bridge during a news conference on January 9, 2014 at the Statehouse in Trenton, New Jersey.  According to reports Christie's Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly is accused of giving a signal to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to close lanes on the George Washington Bridge, allegedly as punishment for the Fort Lee, New Jersey mayor not endorsing the Governor during the  election.

Charges from Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer that the embattled New Jersey governor threatened to withhold Hurricane Sandy relief funds unless she supported a business deal were “whole-heartedly” denied by Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno this morning. “Mayor Zimmer’s version of our conversation in May of 2013 is not only false but is illogical and does not withstand scrutiny when all of the facts are examined,” said Guadagno. “Any suggestion that Sandy funds were tied to the approval of any project in New Jersey is completely false.” No wiggle room there.
