Christie team slams MSNBC, denies mayor's claim Sandy funds held hostage

(CNN) - Gov. Chris Christie's camp pushed back hard Saturday against allegations by a New Jersey mayor that administration officials threatened to withhold Superstorm Sandy relief funding unless she supported a redevelopment plan favored by the governor.

Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer appeared on MSNBC Saturday to level charges that members of Christie's administration pressured her to approve the project sought by The Rockefeller Group, a real estate developer with ties to the Christie's administration.

MSNBC said its story is based on an interview with "the mayor and e-mails and personal notes she shared with MSNBC."
