There’s a few different reasons I wanted to post the video of Dawn Zimmer’s appearance on Anderson Cooper’s AC360 last night. First was Kim Guadagno’s no-questions rebuke of Zimmer’s allegations the LG played messenger for shakedown; Sandy aid in exchange for greenlighting a project proposed by a politically-favored private developer. Guadagno, speaking in a weird, possibly over-coached cadence, called Zimmer’s allegations “illogical”. It was a strange choice of words – in fact the entire statement was strange (I hear Chris Matthews called it her ‘hostage tape’). Between Zimmer and Guadagno, it looks like somebody is lying. If what Zimmer alleges is real, there may be big trouble ahead for Guadagno and Christie.
That’s the first reason to watch Zimmer’s response; determine for yourself how believable she sounds. The second’s the new evidence Zimmer’s makes available – adding to the timeline of events as she lays them out. And the third relates to something else that happened during Anderson Cooper’s interview with Zimmer – – that will be my next diary.
