Doherty: The LG cannot allow this allegation to go unchallenged

State Sen. Mike Doherty (R-23) this morning said Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno “needs to come clean” on the allegation leveled by Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

Zimmer said Guadagno, now the acting governor as Gov. Chris Christie fundraises in Florida, told her last year in a parking lot that Hurricane Sandy aid for Hoboken hinged on local approval for the Rockefeller Development project in Hoboken.

Governor’s Office Spokesman Mike Drewniak issued a statement to MSNBC, put up onscreen during Steve Kornacki’s segment with Zimmer.

“What or who is asking her to say such outlandish things is anyone’s guess,” Drewniak said.

Doherty called Drewniak’s response inappropriate.

“This is a serious allegation,” said the senator. “Michael Drewniak needs to use a more measured tone here. To dismiss is with the terms he used is not appropriate. It is flippant.

“I think Lieutenant Governor Guadagno needs to say this is untrue,” Doherty added. “I’ve always found her to be trustworthy. It’s appropriate for her to comment. The lieutenant governor cannot allow this to go unchallenged.”
