11 public officials arrested on corruption charges

The Star Ledger and the Associated Press are reporting that 11 public officials, from school board members to state legislators, have been snagged by the FBI and U.S. Attorney's office in "Operation Broken Boards."

The Feds have a news conference scheduled for noon to report more details on the arrests.

From a political point of view, it is noteworthy that one of those arrested, Assemblyman Mims Hackett, is from the 27th district, where the Republicans only have one candidate on the ballot for Assembly.

This shows that, in spite of many, many high-profile arrests and convictions since Christie became U. S. Attorney, and knowing that he and the FBI continue to run political corruption stings, that it is still business as usual for far too many corrupt politicians.
