Feds raid NJ capital's city hall one day after searching mayor's home

Federal agents raided City Hall in New Jersey's capital on Thursday, one day after they swarmed the home of the city's mayor, as well as those of his brother and a campaign supporter.

"The FBI is executing search warrants at various offices at Trenton City Hall, pursuant to an ongoing investigation," FBI Public Affairs Officer Barbara Woodruff said.

    I have to say I moved from back west to New Jersey around 12 years ago and I'm appalled at how often public officials are caught in illegal activity compared to where I grew up. I recall one of the biggest scandals of a mayor when I was a kid was when city funds had been used for his daughter's wedding (i.e. police guards, use of a city facility without paying a fee, etc. nothing really like straight up 'embezzling funds'). We desparately need electoral reform. Our current process is rife with corrupt practices. Stop making the election 'for sale to the highest spender' instead put a cap on election dollars spent (a low cap).

    I"m gay. I like their chicken. I've been in their Headquarters and didn't burn. Although the church bells rining at 9 AM seemed cult like. I'm sure they have gay people working for them. It's only chicken. geez.

  4. Racists White Boy

    Where did all this crazy racist5 stuff come from.I know being White and all I am not allowed to trace my roots back thru history because that would make me a racist. The Black folk are the only ones left who are qualified to run this country. Just look at all the projects and see how great they are. And what a GREAT job Mr O'bama is doing.

    People of the United States of America and the MSNBC Lean Forward Progressives,
    The Mayor of Trenton must be a Republian because we know that the DOJ would let any Democrat,Black Panther member or MSNBC Talk show hosts (ie REV AL SHARPTON)slide!
