Feds Expand Probe Into Christie’s Role In Bridgeghazi
Jersey City Mayor Stephen Fulop says when he wouldn’t endorse Chris Christie for reelection, meetings were called off in retaliation.
The Wall Street Journal reported authorities have subpoenaed the campaign organization for documents relating to government meetings scheduled between Fulop and Christie staffers that were canceled.
Fulop a year ago charged that the campaign set up the meetings for him after he was elected mayor, but the meetings were called off after he said he wouldn’t back the Republican governor for re-election in his 2013 campaign against Democrat Barbara Buono.
The subpoenas from U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman show a widening of an investigation that began with a focus on the George Washington Bridge lane closures.
A spokesman for Christie declined comment. A lawyer representing the re-election campaign didn’t respond to requests for comment.
