As Chris Christie leaves his 'bridge-gate' troubles behind and flies to Florida to campaign for a fellow Republican, a New Jersey mayor has made more damning accusations against the Governor.

Hoboken mayor Dawn Zimmer has claimed Hurricane Sandy relief aid was withheld from her city in an attempt to push through a redevelopment backed by the New Jersey Governor.

Ms Zimmer alleged that two of Christie's aides - Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno and community affairs commissioner Richard Constable - leaned on her to gain support for a lucrative deal.

With all due respect to the Governor - if he leans on you, you will need am EMT crew and a tire pump - not a definition ....
