New Jersey: Massive Corruption Bust

This should help former prosecutor Chris Christie in his run for the Governor’s office.

The mayors of Hoboken and Secaucus, New Jersey, and several rabbis were among at least 30 people arrested today as part of a public corruption and money- laundering investigation by U.S. authorities. Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, 32, and Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, both Democrats, Jersey City Council President Mariano Vega Jr., and State Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt, a Republican from Ocean Township, were among those arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. They are scheduled to appear in federal court in Newark, New Jersey, later today.

Democrats Censor Mailings Critical of Obama-care

{{w|Kevin Brady}}, member of the United States...Image of Kevin Brady via WikipediaDemocrats are preventing Republican House Members from sending their constituents a mailing that is critical of the majority’s health care reform plan, blocking the mailing by alleging that it is inaccurate.

House Republicans are crying foul and claiming that the Democrats are using their majority to prevent GOP Members from communicating with their constituents.

The dispute centers on a chart created by Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) and Republican staff of the Joint Economic Committee to illustrate the organization of the Democratic health care plan.

At first glance, Brady’s chart resembles a board game: a colorful collection of shapes and images with a web of lines connecting them.

New Jersey: Democrat Councilman Uses N-Word on MySpace

“It’s a little on the BS side. This is about a handful of bad grapes out there who are fishing to hurt me, and it’s just ridiculous.”

PolitickerNJ.com

Wow, look at this a-hole. This guy looks like he lost his job after Bennigans closed and then couldn’t get a job at Wendy’s, Burger King, McDonald’s or even White Castle (Which is usually the last resort for someone like this guy). What was this dude’s solution? Hmm, maybe…

“Yo…I’m a run for Councilman in South Plainfield, New Jersey.”

This guy certainly is a loser, but the people of this town voted for him. What does that make them?
