NEWARK, N.J. - An investigation into the sale of black-market kidneys and fake Gucci handbags evolved into a sweeping probe of political corruption in New Jersey, ensnaring more than 40 people Thursday, including three mayors, two state lawmakers and several rabbis.....

....All but one are Democrats
Among the 44 people arrested were the mayors of Hoboken, Ridgefield and Secaucus, Jersey City's deputy mayor, and two state assemblymen. A member of the governor's cabinet resigned after agents searched his home, though he was not arrested. All but one of the officeholders are Democrats.



Glad to see Luzerne County now has rival for the center of the Universe for corruption. I'll also note this area is heavily Democratic.

A lot of the public figures appear to be directly involved in developments. Coincidentally the corruption here revolved around development too. The company that owned the detention center at the center of the controversy had a big announcement before the *censored* hit the fan where they were going to build a $1 billion+ cargo airport down Coal Berner's way. That project's been stalled and probably won't get built. It almost went through though, I believe they only needed the grants from the state and it was already in place but was pulled at the last minute.
