Only 6? Wow, NJ 'officials' must have either cleaned up their act or gotten sleazier lawyers since yr hmbl srvnt lived in that state.

Here's a hint: 6 isn't news. 600 might be.

"minor ethical issues."? Get caught doing this at a federal bank, or any bank for that matter, and see what happens. These people violated the people's trust and as such should suffer the consequences.

I think it is great. These people vote year in, year out for higher taxes and they have the highest in the country. Democracy is great but unfortunately they are like children who create a mess and don't want to clean it up so they will all go south and try to make a mess down there.
