After months of praising the Christie Administration after Superstorm Sandy, Zimmer used the media frenzy when the Bridgegate story broke in January of 2014 to become famous by alleging that Guadagno shook her down seven months earlier.
The mayor said that Guadagno told her, on behalf of Governor Christie, that Hoboken’s Sandy recovery aide was tied to Zimmer pushing through a development application for the Rockefeller Group. The shakedown allegedly happened at a supermarket ribbon cutting ceremony in May of 2013. Zimmer suddenly remembered the shakedown in January of 2014 when the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal was dominating the news.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Dawn Zimmer, Hoboken, Kim Guadagno, Monmouth County, Paul Fishman, U.S. Attorney | Tags: Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer, Lt.

It turns out that the Bloomberg Business story that David Wildstein, Governor Chris Christie’s former #2 man at Port Authority of NY/NJ,would plead guilty to an unspecified federal charge associated with the Bridgegate scandal today, is not so.
U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman’s Public Affairs Office sends an email to the media every morning with a heads up of proceeding that are planned for the day. There was no proceedings including Wildstein in this morning’s email. I emailed Matthew Reilly, the Public Information Officer. “Nothing on Wildstein? Was the Bloomberg leak another false alarm?” “Nothing on Wildstein,” Reilly responded.
There were going to be Bridgegate indictments announced in December, January and March, according to mainstream press reports. They never happened.

Correction: U.S. Attorney has not opened new Christie investigation into Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office
Contrary to published reports, including one here at MMM, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman’s office has not opened a new criminal investigation into Governor Chris Christie’s role, if any, in quashing the prosecution of former Hunterdon County Sheriff Deborah Trout.
The initial inaccurate report was published by International Business Times, a content partner of MMM through repubHub. MMM published the IBT story after noticing it was being cited by other news outlets.
On Friday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show published a report that included a denial from the U.S. Attorney’s office that it is investigating Christie over the Trout issue. (h/t SaveJersey)
