State Sen. Linda Greenstein on Sunday said she thought the state senate's investigative committee also could have a role in the investigation into Zimmer's claims.

"I think the allegations are extremely disturbing," she said on MSNBC's "Up With Steve Kornacki."

State assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R) disagreed with Greenstein on the role the legislature should play in investigating these new claims. He said on MSNBC that these matters should be left up to law enforcement.

Bramnick added that he felt that Zimmer's allegations are so "repugnant" that he has a hard time believing that Christie took part in illegal activities.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
