(NBC News) The lieutenant governor of New Jersey on Monday flatly denied a mayor's allegation that Governor Chris Christie's administration withheld hurricane relief money because the mayor would not support a real estate project important to the governor.

Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno called the charge false, illogical and offensive.

"The suggestion that anyone would hold back Sandy relief funds for any reason is wholly and completely false," she said at an appearance in the New Jersey town of Union Beach.
