NEWARK, N.J. - The mayors of two New Jersey cities, a state legislator and several rabbis were arrested Thursday in connection with a major corruption and international money-laundering conspiracy probe. Some of the suspects were also allegedly involved in an illegal human organ-selling ring.
Among about 30 people arrested Thursday were Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano III, Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini, former Jersey City Council President L. Harvey Smith and state Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt.
Van Pelt is accused of accepting $10,000 from a government witness posing as a developer seeking permit help.

Such a deal!! They were saying on Fox News that those Israeli kidneys were bought for $10k and sold for about $150k here in the states. What a cozy little racket.

They have some rabbis in Jersey. :eek:

Jersey politics makes Chicago and Illinois politics look virtuous by comparison.

Any area with a democrat problem has lots of corruption as a result.

:confused:

true true. Obama is all about transparency and openness - did you know he's posting all bills online for public examination for 5 days before a vote so that America knows EVERY INCH of what they are voting for? They NEVER add hundreds of pages to a bill the night before a vote . . . . :rolleyes:
