From the NY Post:
All the suspects in both investigations were brought down by the same shady developer, who wore a wire for three years while he bought off politicians, passed supposedly dirty money for laundering and even arranged for a $160,000 kidney sale.
"The list of names and titles of those arrested today sounds like a roster for a community leaders' meeting," said Weysan Dun, the special agent in charge of the FBI's Newark office. "Sadly, these prominent individuals were not in a meeting room, but were in the FBI booking room this morning."
One suspect, Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, a Democrat, was caught on tape at a diner bragging, "I could be indicted and still get 85 to 95 percent of the vote," said acting US Attorney Ralph Marra.
Developers, bribes, religious figures, boasts about support... this sounds like a regular day at the office for the City Council!
