Hoboken Mayor: Christie Administration Held Sandy Funds Hostage

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's (R) problems don't end with the George Washington Bridge scandal. Hoboken, NJ, Mayor Dawn Zimmer (D) alleges that two of the governor's aides warned her that Hurricane Sandy relief money depended on her support of a development project favored by the Christie administration. The mayor has not approved the project and her city has received a fraction of the relief money requested. Zimmer's explosive allegations fit the Christie administration's reputation for political retribution. Watch as she is interviewed by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki:

Since this interview, Mayor Zimmer has met with federal investigators and turned over documents related to her allegations.
