New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's public relations headache just got more intense. The mayor of Hoboken said Christie's lieutenant governor told her that Superstorm Sandy recovery funds depended on whether she supported a real estate development – allegedly boss' orders.
Did Christie threaten to withhold Sandy funds to help a developer with ties to his administration?Lt. Gov. Kim Gudagno is expected to "categorically deny" the allegations Monday, a source said.
Either way, it's another dilemma for a man whose aides may have sought revenge against anther mayor in the form of a massive traffic jam. Such allegations could complicate any hopes for a 2016 presidential run.
2. Sochi Olympics Threat
"We've prepared a present for you": Those are the ominous words of two extremists in a video threatening violence at the Sochi Olympics next month.
"We've prepared a present for you and all tourists who'll come over," the video says. "If you will hold the Olympics, you'll get a present from us for the Muslim blood that's been spilled."
Russia is already grappling with a slew of concerns ahead of the Olympics, from its controversial stance on gay rights to last month's dual bombings in the transit hub of Volgograd.
The two men in the video claimed responsibility for one of the Volgograd blasts.
Perhaps one of the greatest Olympic feats this year would be making sure the Games finish without a hitch.
3. Credit Card Security
First Target said millions of customers may have had their credit card information jeopardized. Then Neiman Marcus said it had been hacked, too.
Now, a report from the cyberwatch group IntelCrawler suggests at least six more retailers have yet to tell customers they've been breached with similar malicious software.
So who's behind this security debacle? According to IntelCrawler, it can all be traced to a 17-year-old in Russia. Experts say the teen who made the malware shared it with other hackers.
