Huge corruption busts going down in Hoboken

So, Hoboken’s brand new mayor Peter Cammarano and dozens of other officials just got arrested for corruption!  It sounds like they have him dead-to-rights… even accepting $10,000 from an undercover operative last Thursday.

According to the Times, Cammarano was quoted earlier in the investigation as saying

Right now, the Italians, the Hispanics, the seniors are locked down. Nothing can change that now. … I could be, uh, indicted, and I’m still gonna win 85 to 95 percent of those populations.

What a dirtbag! Hoboken is awful with corruption and double standards, so it is great to see that at least some of these bastards are going down.  I lived there for 5 years and in my experience it’s all about who you know, even with the simplest things like parking and building permits.  They ought to just bug every room at Hoboken city hall for a year and really clean house… but then I guess just the cleaning staff would be left.
