Fort Lee mayor rebuffs Christie lawyer's request

FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - February 18, 2014

Fort Lee Mark Sokolich also was asked to provide documents. The Record reports that Mastro sent a letter back to attorney Randy Mastro on Monday declining the request.

Emails and text messages subpoenaed by a New Jersey legislative committee revealed that an aide to Christie wrote to a Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official and told him, "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee."

A federal investigation into the matter is underway.

Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer, who has made separate allegations against the governor and his aides, also has declined an interview request by Mastro.
