The Principled Leadership of the Fat Man

WNYC Radio reports:

Does Chris Christie Owe Hoboken $700,000?

The amount of Sandy aid that’s at the heart of Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s accusation against the Christie administration was initially determined through a faulty selection and scoring process, documents show.

An investigation by WNYC and NJ Spotlight has found that by using the Christie administration’s own scoring criteria, seven of Hoboken’s requests for backup generators should have been funded instead of just one, making it potentially eligible for up to $700,000 instead of the $142,080 the city was awarded.

Zimmer has claimed her city was shortchanged because she refused to support a redevelopment project favored by a close ally of Governor Christie.
