The Gold Standard for Political Corruption

Albany is a travesty, but these guys make them look like shnooks:
FBI arrests 11 NJ officials for bribery – NJ.com

The 18-month investigation, which included an undercover operation with secret recordings, began focusing on contracts awarded by the Pleasantville School Board in Atlantic County. The probe eventually widened to include other government contracts and involved officials from Passaic and Essex counties, authorities said.

Among those charged are Samuel Rivera, the mayor of Passaic; Assemblyman Mims Hackett, Jr., who is also the mayor of Orange; Assemblyman Rev. Alfred E. Steele, from Paterson; and Keith Reid, the chief of staff to Newark City Council President Mildred Crump. All of them are Democrats.

The probe also netted two Passaic City Councilmen – Marcellus Jackson and Jonathon Soto – and five of the nine members of the Pleasantville School Board, which is enough for a quorum.

Note that these fuckers were caught pulling, in the grand scheme of things, some pretty petty ante payoffs and kick backs. Note also that it took the Feds, not the local and state DAs, to break it wide open. It is not wild speculation to believe that more than a few members of this crew are gonna roll over on the major players in Joisey’s systematically corrupt–and Democrat controlled–political hierarchy; party chits will not be able to be called in when the guy looking to fry you is a Fed, as opposed to someone who most likely owes something to someone in Trenton for the position they are in.
