Hoboken mayor releases private diary entries to back up Christie allegation

HOBOKEN, N.J. (PIX11) – Appearing on CNN, the Mayor of Hoboken Dawn Zimmer is standing by her allegations that top officials, including the Lt. Governor in the Christie Administration, withheld Sandy aid for the city because she did not approve a development project.

Mayor Zimmer alleges that she only received $300,000 of the millions of hurricane relief money requested because she refused a private development plan by the Manhattan based Rockefeller group. The group reportedly has close ties to Governor Christie.

But the Christie administration is denying all of the allegations releasing multiple statements noting that Zimmer publicly praised the Governor two months after the alleged incident.

But Zimmer says she kept a diary describing the meetings in full detail and shared several pages with the New York Daily News.

With one entry reading about the Governor: “I thought he was honest. I thought he was moral. I thought he was something different. This week I found out he’s cut from the same corrupt cloth that I have been fighting for the last four years.”

Assemblyman John Wisniewski, who is leading the probe of theĀ  George Washington Bridge lane closures appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press”- saying he’s also going to examine Zimmer’s charges.

But during the same program, former Mayor Rudy Guiliani called for Wisniewski to step down from the investigations because he reportedly accused the governor of lying.

    Guiliani should step the "F" back. He's the last one who should be given anyone any advice. This from the man who wanted to move his mistress in the same house his wife resides in. If i was Christi, i would keep Guiliani as far away as possible. I do believe the Mayor of Hoboken. I don't believe she the type that would just come out with outrageous lies.Christi has a lot on his place.
