Five Current, Former New Jersey Public Officials Arrested For Bribery
There’s a reason New Jersey is colloquially known as The Soprano State.
A bipartisan group of public officials in the state were arrested Thursday for taking thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for political favors. Three Democrats and Two republicans were charged after an investigation by New Jersey’s Office of Public Integrity and Accountability (OPIA). State Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced the arrest in a press release.
