NEWARK, N.J. – The mayors of two New Jersey cities and a state legislator are under arrest Thursday as part of a major corruption and international money laundering conspiracy probe.

Federal prosecutors say about 30 people have been arrested in the two-track investigation. They include Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt, Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano III and Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell. Federal prosecutors say several rabbis in New York and New Jersey are also arrested.

  • Since you're posting this, I'm certain these people that were indicted are all REPUBLICANS?! If so, then GOOD RIDDANCE!!! There are bad seeds in every bunch, and if they are found to be corrupt, then adios!

  • Nice!!! Just goes to show, you can't trust anyone, ever. What a damn shame! I wish my kids were older, just so they wouldn't have to endure a long life of this insanity, and when the world blows to shit, they will have lived their lives. It's too bad they won't have a fair government in their lifetime. I cry and pray for them everyday. What a shitty world.
