    Mayor Goes to Feds Over Christie

    TRENTON, NJ - JANUARY 9:   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.

    The Democratic mayor of Hoboken, New Jersey visited the office of the U.S. attorney for several hours Sunday after saying Chris Christie ordered aid for Superstorm Sandy to be ransomed in exchange for her support of a private business development. Dawn Zimmer said the lieutanant governor told her: "This was a direct message from the governor." Zimmer said she requested $100 million and was given $142,000. Christie's office ripped her: "It’s very clear partisan politics are at play here as Democratic mayors with a political axe to grind come out of the woodwork and try to get their faces on television."
