BREAKING: Feds subpoena Hoboken for Sandy related documents

SandyGate and BridgeGate revelations escalate problems for Gov. Christie

Events accelerated at a whirlwind pace on the SandyGate front in Hoboken as another blockbuster hit the Christie Administration earlier Friday afternoon.

First, Hoboken is cooperating with the US Attorney's Office which presented a subpoena for documents related to communications with the Governor's Office.

City Communications Director Juan Melli issued the following statement:

For nearly two weeks, we have been voluntarily providing documents and answering questions from the U.S. Attorney’s office. Today the City received a subpoena for documents and we will continue to fully cooperate with their investigation.

Earlier today, the NY Times reported Gov. Christie's childhood friend and former official of the Port Authority released a statement via his attorney the governor was in fact aware of the lane closures to the George Washington Bridge at the time it occurred.

State Senator and Union City Mayor Brian Stack (c) voiced support for
Gov. Christie in recent days and tried to steer clear of his Assembly
selection Carmelo Garcia's political lawsuit machinations.
Events however are overtaking political gamesmanship.

Talking Ed Note: Hey Brian, Carmelo who?
