Dawn Zimmer, the Democratic mayor of Hoboken, is accusing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie of withholding Sandy relief funds because she opposed a development project.

"It's unbelievable, but it's true, and I'm coming forward," Zimmer said in on CNN's "State of the Union." "It's stunning ... but it's true."

Zimmer said that last year she was told by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno that she wouldn't be receiving more funds for her hard-hit city unless she supported the Christie-backed development project. The message, Zimmer said Guadagno told her, had come directly from the governor.

Christie has spent the last few weeks under fire over "Bridgegate," with aides accused of slowing down traffic at the busy George Washington Bridge to punish a mayor who had not endorsed his reelection campaign.

On CNN Sunday, host Candy Crowley pressed Zimmer on why she was coming forward now with the accusations. Just last year, Crowley pointed out, Zimmer had sent out a tweet praising Christie.

"I really didn't think anyone would have believed me," Zimmer said.

Now now! You know a Republican would never blackmail or cheat or lie?


Need a bridge?

Just ask Comrade Winston what the excuse is for this. I'm sure the LIAR will have some excuse to defend anything a Republican does. Oh but I forgot! He says he is not a Republican. He is just a Republican when the wind blows his direction.

Any word on that drug bust in Steele Comrade? Ya know that God fearing community you live in? yet you bash Caruthersville for its citizens of all being on welfare and black? Any word on that Comrade? How many fine citizens does this make for Steele being involved in drug sales? How many Doug?

Don't worry all you "NON" republicans, Christie said he would get to the bottom of the bridge scandal like it was a bucket of chicken.

In regard to who I believe on the issue of Dawn Zimmer versus Chris Christie and Kim Guadagno, since Christie and Guadagno are both lawyers, and I know that lawyers are: one, very honest and ethical people; and two, lawyers would not lie - therefore I definitely believe the version of events that has been presented by the Christie camp rather than the version of events Zimmer has stated.

In fact since that sleazy mafia of alcoholics, drug addicts, professional pathological liars, and common criminals hiding behind law licenses that composes the overwhelming majority of the legal profession are such honest and wonderful people, therefore, and rather than investigating any of this any further, I think we should just automatically prosecute Dawn Zimmer for perjury for having the gall to even think that any lawyer would do anything unethical, sleazy, or dishonest.

NOTE: One of the dirty little secrets of the legal profession is that lawyers have far and away the highest rates of alcoholism and drug abuse - and also of suicide, divorce, and domestic violence - of any major profession. So therefore any time a lawyer tries to feed you the standard lawyers' lies and garbage, ask him whether he, and just like a lot of lawyers, is on drugs.

Hillary is responsible for the brutal murder of ambassador Stevens and three patriots who came to his defense in Benghazi. She was about as big of a failure as sec.of state as Barry Obama has been as president. Hillary had zero accomplishments and literally hundreds of failures as our top foreign diplomat. Most of our nations friends now don't trust us and our enemies are more emboldened than ever and stick fingers in our nations eye whenever possible.

Christie hopefully has learned a valuable political lesson. You can hug and praise Obama a week before the election but democrats will still hate your guts. Bridgegate, Sandygate are just the beginning of troubles for Christie. They will invent whatever stories are needed to drive his voter favorable ratings down. The liberal socialists have anointed Hillary the murderer as their next dear leader. Christie will be destroyed. That's just the democratic party way.

I'm surprised that Fox propaganda and the Teabilly congress hasn't found a way to blame President Obama for the bridge scandal yet. Give them time!

Seems thats all this little group on here does is listen to Fox News. Isn't it weird how they just hate it but listen all the time, whats with that? I never listen to NBC because it is so biased. Democrats don't have to worry because it never puts them in a bad light. They just never mention it at all. I mean if you want ALL of the news you have to go to Fox.

If you never listen to NBC how do you know it is biased??? Because FOX told you so. Bah Bah little sheep. As far as listening in on FOX from time to time just gives the left all the evidence and ammunition they need to win any conservative argument.

Keep your friends close but keep your enemy even closer.

Am I clear?

Heck yeah I watch Fox every now and then. It's hilarious. Too predictable though. I'm always eager to what new way they come up with to make Benghazi a head line again or what new fabricated scandal they dream up.
I do watch it a little but only to make fun of it see how far fetched their lies are that day. I would never ever watch it for actual news.
It's sad that Fox controls the Republican Party and even decides who will run for president. Lol Hurry along you little sheeple.

Never will forget the great Karl Rove melt down on election night 2012. Was reported for weeks after the election Rove, still believed Romney had won Ohio LOL

If that doesnt set the scene for the mindset of Fox News, you tell me what does other than the hate Obama propaganda they live by.
