Things is looking Murky for New Jersey corruption

Trenton, New Jersey - (Disaster Press): The FBI's corruption and bribery busting fever has spread to New Jersey with the arrest of eleven public officials this morning including two New Jersey state assemblymen.

Assemblyman the Reverend Alfred Steele heads the list. He is a six-term incumbent, a deputy Assembly speaker, a Passaic County undersheriff and pastor at Seminary Baptist Church in Paterson.

Mims Hackett Jr was also arrested. A three-term incumbent lawmaker, Hackett has been the Mayor of Orange since 1996.

Both were targeted in the swoop which is connected to bribery and corruption allegations in contracts awarded by the Pleasantville school board in Atlantic County, on the mainland just outside Atlantic City.

Also on the Feds' busted list are Passaic's Mayor Samuel Rivera, the mayor of Passaic, and Newark City Council President Mildred Crump's chief of staff Keith Reid.

Today's bust follows the indictments on federal corruption charges of two Democrat New Jersey state senators, Wayne Bryant of Lawnside and Sharpe James of Newark.

"This could be the tip of the iceberg for New jersey," a FBI source chuckled today.
