Turn on Up with Steve Kornaki. Hoboken Mayor on and claims Christie administration told her to "Move the Rockafeller project forward" and she' d get the Sandy Recovery money Hoboken was asking for. Update below.
Rockefeller Group owns 4 acres out of 19 in north Hoboken and wanted it designated for redevelopment. Wolff Samson, David Samson's firm, was lobbying Hoboken to get the project going. Mayor Of Hoboken, Dawn Zimmer claims that the Christie administration told her that Hoboken would get its Sandy funds if she "moved forward with the Rockefeller project"
This amounts to the same kind of "Pay to Play" corruption that Christie went after as US Attorney. In 2009 Christie rounded up a lot of NJ mayors in a sting operation, including the previous mayor of Hoboken.
Given that federal funds are at the heart of this, I see federal corruption charges in the future for the Governor, Lt. governor and most of his administration.
