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.
