An office headed by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno has been issued a subpoena from the New Jersey Attorney General on “Hoboken issues,” a report says.

The Record wrote early this morning the a spokesman from the state Attorney General confirmed a subpoena had been issued to the New Jersey Department of State, which is headed by Guadagno – who is also the secretary of state.
While no further details were revealed, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer told MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki back in January that Guadagno threatened her by saying the Mile Square City would not get anymore Hurricane Sandy aid unless the mayor pushed through a politically connected development project.
West Orange law firm Wolff and Samson – where then-Port Authority Chairman David Samson is a partner – was the law firm representing the developer on the project.
Samson, a known ally of Governor Chris Christie, resigned as PA Chairman back in late March.
Zimmer, a Democrat, also told Kornacki that she felt tensions rise between Christie, a Republican, after she decided not to endorse him in his re-election bid in November.
Zimmer’s office has denied comment on the investigation since federal law enforcement has gotten involved, while Guadagno has adamantly denied the claims made against her.
Earlier this week, Guadagno reportedly said she had “no idea” about the existence of any newly issued subpoena.
