Federal prosecutors reportedly want to look at documents from Hoboken, N.J., where the city's mayor has alleged Christie administration officials tried to bully her to fast-track a project or be denied Superstorm Sandy aid.
a North Jersey newspaper, reported the U.S. Attorney's Office subpoenaed the city Friday for documents related to the Christie administration.
“The City of Hoboken has received a subpoena for documents and is fully cooperating,” a spokesman for Mayor Dawn Zimmer told The Record. “We have already been voluntarily providing documents to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.”
Zimmer already turned over her diary
— where she claims she documented conversations — and other documents Jan. 19, a day after she publicly accused
Lt. Gov. Kim Guadgno and Richard Constable, the commissioner of the state Department of Community Affairs, of telling her they wouldn't help Hoboken if Zimmer didn’t green-light a favored real estate project.
She also alleged Marc Ferzan, executive director of the Governor's Office of Recovery and Rebuilding, tried to pressure her to support the development, The Record reported.
Ferzan countered Zimmer wanted $100 million in Sandy aid and the state only had $300 million to dole out between cities seeking a combined $14 billion, the Record reported.
Guadagno and Constable both flatly denied
Meanwhile, The Jersey Journal
reported doubts have been raised about Zimmer's diary where she allegedly documented incriminating conversations.
Attorney Louis Zayas,
who represented former Hoboken public safety director Angel Alicea in a wrongful termination suit last year, told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly that Zimmer said in her deposition, and on the witness stand, she didn't keep any kind of journal to document city business.
"I find it curious that now she's alleging that she had some sort of journal, a diary of some sort,” Zayas told Kelly.
