New Jersey’s lieutenant governor Kim Guadagno “wholeheartedly” denied accusations that she threatened to withhold Sandy-relief funds from Hoboken’s mayor. Over the weekend, Mayor Dawn Zimmer told MSNBC that Guadagno told her in a parking lot that “the money would start flowing” if she pushed forward with a local development project.
