ROSELLE One day after announcing his candidacy for a third term, the mayor of Roselle was indicted today on charges of insurance fraud and leaving the scene of an accident.
Garrett Smith, an outspoken 49-year-old Democrat, is accused of leaving a bar early Christmas Day, crashing into a parked car, then driving home leaving a trail of automotive fluid that police tracked to his garage door, said Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow.
The day after the incident, authorities said, Smith moved his car into the street as a blizzard pummeled New Jersey. During that storm, Smith repeatedly told police and his insurance company that someone else damaged his car perhaps a snowplow driver, Romankow said.
He was indicted on three counts: one charging insurance fraud, and two charging filing a false police report. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison and could not hold public office.

Now there's a surprise.
A corrupt Democrat. Somehow, the two terms just seem to go together.
I don’t mind corrupt Democrats so much, but I do dislike them corrupting the country.
