"The allegations discussed today by Mayor Zimmer are serious and yet again raise concern about abuse of government power, This certainly has attracted our attention. We need to obtain all relevant facts, confer with our special counsel and determine the committee's best course of action," said Wisniewski.

On Friday, the Assembly Democrats announced Wisniewski's committee had served 20 individuals and organizations with subpoenas including Christie's office, his re-election campaign, and many of his top aides. Some Democrats have alleged Christie's allies ordered the closure of the lanes, which led to days of traffic in Fort Lee, N.J., to retaliate against a mayor who did not endorse him.
