    Mayors, rabbis arrested in NJ corruption probe

    Mayors, rabbis arrested in NJ corruption probe

    Two northern New Jersey mayors, several rabbis and other politicians were arrested on Thursday in a federal investigation into public corruption and international money laundering, U.S. authorities said.
    Among the approximately 30 people arrested were Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, who took office 23 days ago, Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, state Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt and Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark.

    Also arrested in the money-laundering investigation were several rabbis in New York and New Jersey, the federal prosecutor's office said.

    The international money-laundering was "high volume," it said.

    Local television showed images of rabbis and the two mayors taken into federal custody in Newark, New Jersey


    This is big. This will have ramifications on the Governers race. Stay tuned. That said, corruption in NJ? This may not be *BN* worthy!

    Are these democrats or republican mayors? Does this make a difference in the national stage?

    Was Sargeant Crowley among the police officers? He's probably a racist and anti-semite, right?

    I received a "CNN Breaking News" e-mail about this. This is unquestionably BN worthy!

    one of the best local news headlines I've ever read was "Camden: City accounting in in turmoil."




    Imagine, what goes on in Camden isn't above board.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    It is news.

    Corruption in NJ and somebody's actually getting arrested.

    How is that NOT breaking news?

    True.

    The existence of corruption is not news, no matter where you hear about it.

    Corrupt officials being arrested, however....
