    Default 11 More In NJ

    The Sopranos never had it so good.

    FBI arrests 11 N.J. officials in corruption probe
    Mayors, lawmakers, others accused of taking bribes to influence contracts

    TRENTON, N.J. - FBI agents arrested 11 public officials in towns across New Jersey Thursday on charges of taking bribes in exchange for influencing the awarding of public contracts, the U.S. Attorney?s Office said.

    Two of those arrested are state lawmakers, two are mayors, three are city councilmen and several served on the school board in Pleasantville, where the scandal began.

    More than 100 public officials in the state have been convicted on federal corruption charges in the last five years. Two other Democratic state senators, Wayne Bryant of Lawnside and Sharpe James of Newark, are among others facing pending corruption charges.

    Phew. I'm glad it's not Illinois. A bunch of cops from the suburb I grew up in were indicted a couple of weeks ago, and the former mayor of the town I work in now is serving eight years in a jail in Nevada. Thank you, New Jersey!

    And some wonder why so much money is spent on trying to win an elected office.

    Would you believe some of these Dems put their lives on line for as little as $1500 ? That's the difference between a Democrap and a Republigoon. At least when a Republigoon goes astray, it'll be worth $100 K or more.
