Really?  I don’t know why Jersey (and Hoboken in particular) get such a bad wrap for being corrupt and mobbed up.  I mean, it’s just crazy talk!

I’m sure you can find at least another 20 towns who’ve had their mayors arrested…on their birthday…after only a month in office.  All the cool kids are doing it.  Then again, I don’t know how many of those 20 other cases would involve rabbis laundering money through their religious houses.  The Hoboken crowd likes to take it up a notch.  That’s just how we roll.

The allegations of fat envelopes filled with wads of cash could help explain our ’08 budget deficit.  Apparently $11 million seems to be the arbitrary line that must be crossed before government officials will stop turning a blind eye.  How much trouble can you cram into one little square mile?

I’m sure all the seedy details will be released over the course of the day.  Really Petey is just lucky he’s not in the meadowlands somewhere rotting.  Not that there’s any of that kind of stuff here.  No sir.  No way.
