Enjoy, boy:

"The U.S. Attorney's Office has asked that we not conduct additional media interviews, and we are respecting their request,” read a statement from Mayor Zimmer's office to the Jersey Journal.

Well knock me down with a feather! So now the Holder Justice Department is running cover for podunk mayors? Who'da thunk it? To be honest, I wouldn't doubt one bit that Holder planted this story with Zimmer--a like-minded, willing participant--and assured her that he would never let the lie see the light of day.

So you have more inside info than a senior official in the State Dept now? Where you there? Tell us about your experience in Benghazi before you go "dismissing" anyone. Im sure the senate would love to hear you first hand account of what happened that day seeing as though you know so much more than anyone in the world. Clearly we all missed the part about the anonymous topix commenter standing outside the walls that day. Some one should call Hillary. We need your testimony immediately. LOL. And you call others "Mr.No Credibility" Hypocrite be thy name.

You have no knowledge about Benghazi, you only believe what your far-right handlers tell you.

The Congressional Repub licans have done nothing but conduct a witch-hunt in pursuit of damaging claims against Hillary Clinton and the President. NO credibility on your side whatsoever.

I guess she decided to respect the request sometime after the interviews she gave over this past week end. You know, the ones in which her own staff called her claim "absurd, "

"I don't think it was retaliation and I don't have any reason to think it's retaliation, but I'm not satisfied with the amount of money I've gotten so far," Hoboken, NJ Mayor Zimmer told CNN.

Zimmer asked for $100 million from a roughly $300 million pot of money for which there was $14 billion worth of requests.
Since that request, Hoboken has been approved for nearly $70 million in aid. The city has also been identified as a pilot community for a federal program to prevent flooding, one of only four such projects in New Jersey.

----------
Wonder what she would have gotten if she succumbed to Christie's pressure.

Trouble is it's Christie's office that's making the claims about how much aid they would've gotten. And since that office has done little but lie so far....

Facts:

"The mayor, Dawn Zimmer, hasn’t approved the project, but she did request $127 million in hurricane relief for her city of Hoboken – 80% of which was underwater after Sandy hit in October 2012. What she got was $142,000 to defray the cost of a single back-up generator plus an additional $200,000 in recovery grants."

Now Christie's office lies about how much they were approved for. Who can believe this state's corrupt rulers?

No, you're too busy kissing his butt and blaming Clinton and Obama for a terrorist attack - instead of the terrorists.

Who get a free pass from you, evidently...

No one has lied or divided the nation more than barock, the yellow, of Benghazi who might have been trayvon, but his red line was crossed over a video.
