Dawn Zimmer Diary Drama

Posted: Updated:
Hoboken, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer has recently accused the Christie administration of withholding Sandy relief money over an ongoing development project, an incident that she allegedly wrote down and referred to in her diary.

In her journal entries Zimmer apparently describes feeling threatened by Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno and Community Affairs Director Richard Constable when they discussed Sandy money back in the spring, but now new accusations claim that the Mayor’s diary references are bogus.

Attorney Louis Zayas who worked a previous case against Dawn Zimmer and the city of Hoboken claims that Dawn previously testified and even signed a waiver that she does not keep notes or a diary, but instead keeps everything in a Google or Outlook calendar, and he has this all in writing.

Now Zayas is saying that either she perjured herself in the past or she only recently created this diary.

“At her deposition she was clear that she did not maintain such a journal or memo pad which we found very odd,” Zayas said.

Pictures have been released of what Zimmer claims to be her diary. It appears to be a bunch of handwritten notes in a small notebook that she sent to the press for publication and turned over as evidence to the U.S. Attorney in their ongoing investigation.

If this diary is in fact legit, then Zimmer held on to this information for over eight months before coming forward to announce that she was strong-armed by the Christie administration.

So now the question is whether or not she lied under oath?
