44 Charged by U.S. in New Jersey Corruption Sweep

New Jersey reasserts its dominance as the center of political corruption in the universe. Sure, Illinois got a lot of attention last year. And South Carolina made a run for the title last month. Even Nevada has been doing its part – both locally and in Washington.

But c’mon – three mayors? Two State assemblymen? And five rabbis? That’s hitting for the cycle, Jersey style, baby. Out-scamming Abscam? It doesn’t get any better than that.
