Jersey City Mayor Says Chris Christie Retaliated Against Him For Not Endorsing, Too

Hoboken mayor also says it's possible


Aides close to Chris Christie shut down lanes on the George Washington Bridge last summer, the popular theory goes, as a means of revenge against a Democratic mayor who didn't endorse the governor for re-election. But other Democratic mayors may have received similar political payback.

Jersey City, N.J. Mayor Steve Fulop told the Wall Street Journal in a story published late Sunday that he's been frozen out since he opted against endorsing Christie last year. The Journal reported that Christie officials offered Fulop "new access to state commissioners, who hold the purse strings for many Jersey City services" in exchange for his support.
