I heard at work today, that a lot of New Jersey politicians got arrested for money laundering, so I looked it up and here it is! [i]NEWARK, N.J. – An investigation into the sale of black-market kidneys and fake Gucci handbags evolved into a sweeping probe of political corruption in New Jersey, ensnaring more than 40 people Thursday, including three mayors, two state lawmakers and several rabbis. Even for a state with a rich history of graft, the scale of wrongdoing alleged was breathtaking. An FBI official called corruption "a cancer that is destroying the core values of this state."[/i] http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090723/ap_on_re_us/us_nj_corruption_arrests Now what really got me, is following.Among the 44 people arrested were the mayors of Hoboken, Ridgefield and Secaucus, Jersey City's deputy mayor, and two state assemblymen. A member of the governor's cabinet resigned after agents searched his home, though he was not arrested.All but one of the officeholders are Democrats. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090723/ap_on_re_us/us_nj_corruption_arrests Somehow I am not surprised. The extend of this scandal is staggering and plain disgusting! So, how were the dumbocrats going to bring change and save the economy again?

When I saw that last night on the news I stopped what I was doing you to stare in amazement. It was unbelievable. I was especially upset at the sale of kidneys for fictitious family members.

How much you wanna bet that if they look deeply enough, ACORN will somehow be involved? "Hope & change", baby - I hope I have some change left in my piggy bank after they're done destroying America!

Oh, I am sure of it. They are going to find more as they dig. It went from 29 people yesterday to 44 by this morning and I doubt they stopped looking for more of them azzholes. You better hide that piggybank well kitty, because they might try to tax that too!

Egads, the mentalities of the people in charge is in comparisom to a Stephen King horror picture. If anyone wants scarey, just keep an eye on these people. You dont have to wait for the horror flicks. They have to work on staying out of trouble and it doesnt look like the economy is a priotity.
