A team of $650-per-hour attorneys representing Governor Christie’s office is seeking documents and a private interview with the Hoboken mayor, whose explosive allegations are a focal point of an ongoing federal probe — that the Christie administration tied Sandy recovery money to approval of a real estate project.
In letters obtained by The Record, lawyer Randy Mastro asked that Mayor Dawn Zimmer and four other Hoboken officials provide his legal team with documents already handed over to federal investigators. Authorities are looking into Zimmer’s claims that she was pressed to support a developer represented by the law firm of David Samson, the chairman of the Port Authority and a Christie confidant.
