I just had a question deleted. Here it is: politics.stackexchange.com/questions/2639/why-did-the-christie-administration-deny-hurricane-sandy-aid-to-hoboken
Title: Why did the Christie administration deny Hurricane Sandy aid to Hoboken?
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, under increased scrutiny due to the "Bridgegate" scandal, is facing a new allegation. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, 80% of the city of Hoboken, New Jersey. was underwater. The city applied for relief money from the New Jersey state government, but it was only given $342.000 from the state's $290 million flood mitigation fund. The mayor of Hoboken claims that Governor Christie's staff had threatened to withhold the money unless the mayor approved a development project run by Christie's friends.
So my question is, is there any public information as to what the stated reason was at least for Hoboken to get so little of the money?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You in Advance.
EDIT: According to this USA Today article, Hoboken "had requested $100 million for Hoboken, which was devasted by the storm. The city received $342,000
So why was this deleted, and can I request that it be undeleted?
The criticism in the comments (by the user Chad) seemed to be that the wording of the question was biased, but that wasn't my intention. As far as I'm concerned, this is just a straightforward factual question, designed to find out whether the state government has released any information about why the funds were denied.
