TRENTON, New Jersey (NBC NEWS) -- New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, plagued by growing questions and controversy surrounding his administration, took the oath of office for a second time Tuesday during an inauguration centered around a message of bipartisan cooperation.
"We cannot fall victim to the attitude of Washington, D.C., the attitude that says 'I am always right and you are always wrong.' The attitude that puts everyone into a box they are not permitted to leave. The attitude that puts political wins ahead of policy agreements," Christie said in his inaugural speech.
The latest accusation against Christie comes from Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer, who has said Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and another key member of governor Christie's inner circle threatened to withhold Hurricane Sandy relief funds unless she supported a major commercial development project.
