My former mayor has been found guilty of 1% of the evil things he did during his time in office. In New Jersey, that’s something to celebrate.
A jury today found former Assemblyman and Perth Amboy Mayor Joseph Vas guilty of receiving illegal campaign funds and lying to federal authorities, according to a report in the Star-Ledger.
“Jurors in U.S. District Court in Newark convicted Vas of a scheme in which $25,000 cash from a developer was distributed to people who then wrote checks to Vas’ ill-fated 2006 campaign for Congress.”
