Default New Jersey corruption

New Jersey has a history of political corruption in all parties.

FBI Arrests Trenton Mayor, Others in Corruption Probe | NBC New York

Hamilton Mayor John Bencivengo's federal corruption case remains on track for November trial | NJ.com

Carlstadt Mayor William Roseman given pre-trial intervention following health insurance fraud charges | NJ.com

Operation Bid Rig - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

mayor trial News, Images, Videos, Classifieds & More - Page 2 - NJ.com


I know some people want to think it is just the Democrats that are corrupt in New Jersey, but it is actually Republicans, Democrats, and Independents that have had their hand in corruption and it none of it is okay, something that only hurts the people of New Jersey regardless of the political background of the politicians.

Definitely something that needs to be cracked down on regardless if they are Republican, Democrat, or Independent.

Can't mention Corzine, that was Obamas buddy. Obama didn't say a thing about what the man he campaigned for did.

Oh no, feel free to mention Corzine, post anything about him being corrupt or being caught with corruption charges, this thread is sort of a collection of corruption in New Jersey regardless of their political party.


Seriously, did you guys read any of those posts or are you assuming that they are just about Republican corruption in this state because last I checked each link points to Democrats, Republicans, and Independents caught in corruption in New Jersey.

Romney's buddy Christie isn't exactly a model clean living either

The other problem in Liberal reasoning here is that VERY FEW REPUBLICANS EVER get elected to offices in New Jersey.

There are those few of course from time to time.

And recently, the people there got tired of the Democratic corruption and elected a Republican Governor who's by all accounts done a great job.

Oh so you admit that Republicans do corrupt things in New Jersey too, what took you so long to admit that?

Hilarious.

And only one of the articles mentioned a Republican. None of the other articles identified party affiliation, so I presume that means they were Democrats.

False, some of the articles you actually have to do some research, but Democrats, Independents, and Republicans have been arrested for corruption in this state. Unless you are trying to say it is okay for Republicans to commit corruption and not Democrats.

That goes to show you know absolutely nothing about New Jersey or the parties history..Do a little research before you continue to try and excuse corruption because someone has a R behind their name.
