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.

    Fatty can lose 500 pounds, he still has no chance to become the “winner” of the Republican Primary.

    I’d like to see him go to jail for a looooooong time, but they’ll probably give him 3 months and community service.

    It’s good to read that this is still being investigated. We may very well discover how devious Christie is, if he is at the bottom of this scandal.
