The FBI is beginning to investigate whether New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie threatened to pull the plug on Hurricane Sandy relief money if a city mayor failed to support a billion-dollar development, NBC News reports.

Agents are questioning witnesses and asking them to preserve any records related to the accusations made by Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

Zimmer’s chief of staff and communications director were among those interviewed, according to NBC News.

“It’s very clear partisan politics are at play here as Democratic mayors with a political axe to grind come out of the woodwork,” Christie spokesman Colin Reed said in an email last weekend.
