Christie to take second oath of office

NEW JERSEY (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Controversy continues to surround New Jersey Governor Chris Christie as he prepares to take the oath of office for his second term Tuesday.

His administration is strongly denying allegations from the Mayor of Hoboken.

Dawn Zimmer says last May Christie's Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno told her she had to approve a real estate development project in her city or lose money for Superstorm Sandy recovery.

Guadagno says that never happened.

"Any suggestion, any suggestion that Sandy funds were tied to the approval of any project in New Jersey is completely false," said Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno.

Zimmer told her story to the U.S. Attorney's Office and is offering to take a lie detector test.

Governor Christie's administration is already under investigation for allegations his aides engineered traffic jams in Fort Lee, New Jersey as payback because that town's mayor didn't endorse him for re-election.
