New Jersey Mayor Convicted of Bribery and Extortion

Dave Warner, Chicago Tribune, February 7, 2014

Trenton Mayor Tony Mack was found guilty of federal extortion and bribery charges after being ensnared in a 2010 sting operation involving the development of a parking garage on city-owned property.

The would-be developers were, in fact, government informants.

Under the scheme, the developers would buy city property for the garage for $100,000 less than the value of the land, and the Democratic mayor of New Jersey’s capital city would receive money in exchange, prosecutors said.

A jury convicted Mack, 48, on all six charges of bribery, extortion and wire and mail fraud after eight hours of deliberation. He has remained in office during the trial.

City Council President George Muschal, a retired police officer, is expected to be sworn in as the new mayor.

The mayor’s brother Ralphiel was accused of acting as a bag man to pick up the bribe money and also was on trial. Prosecutors said the informants offered a bribe of $119,000, about $54,000 of which changed hands.

Arrested in September 2012, Mack has been accused by critics of nepotism and mismanagement since taking office in 2010 in the crime-plagued, economically depressed city of 85,000 people. He was reportedly deeply in debt at the time of his arrest.

    It’s like all jobs they have, once they’re in you can’t get them out no matter what they do.

    • r j p

      Only way to get them out is catch their hand in the cookie jar.
      They all have a hand in the jar.

      • Sue

        Unfortunately I’ve seen too many instances where they’ve taken the jar and nothing was done. Employers had them dead to rights with audio and video. Not only were they let go but gained retribution in the millions. Oddly, 2 were dead within a few years because of their retribution excesses.

    Is there a pattern? A pattern? It’s a Universal Law of Black Politics, which stated briefly is: When blacks are in charge, corruption is writ large. When blacks are the boss, everything is lost. When blacks are first, crime gets worse. Etc.

    A black in a position of authority generally dresses and acts the part but has no clue, skills or abilities to carry out the job with any acceptable level of competency. They believe that their position affords them the opportunity to claim some personal and social justice regardless of the ethics or morality involved.

    They use their social skills to get by and capitalize on White Liberal weakness which empowers and emboldens them to continue the charade.

      That’s the true “White Man’s Burden”. Having to put up with and humor these low IQ imbeciles.

        Deys got deys fingas in da pie.

        Oink oink, ook ook.

        Movin on up…

    • benvad

      We should put Norman Lear on trial at The Hague for his role in genocide. He created the majority of these white hating shows. He & Larry Gelbart, are purveyors of this brainwashing.

    Same old, same old….

      When a black is born a cell should be built and reserved.

      • Max

        They should be born in a land where they belong.

      • DNA Explains It All

        When a black is conceived, a crime stopper reward should be awaiting it’s mother at the nearest abortion clinic.

      • jeffaral

        Better to build enough abortion clinics.

  • Spartacus

    Dat bee rayciss dawg .

    You can’t have blacks in positions of authority. They only help other blacks and discriminate against whites, and they are all corrupt and accept bribes. This is on all levels of government.

  • sbuffalonative

    Black corruption is absolute.

  • MBlanc46

    Just another standard-issue Negro politician. Run a story when there’s one who isn’t on the take.

  • Stogumber

    Isn’t that a bit hard? I mean, I don’t remember that the Clintons have ever been convicted of bribery. Do the white Clintons profit from a white privilege? Or are blacks less crafty in hiding their tracks?

  • Max

    The doofus can’t even steal his way out of debt.

    Classic.

  • QuinnTheEskimo9

    There must be a wing set aside in the federal prison for all the Chicago pols that have been caught in bribery schemes.

  • Anon

    Something to understand about New Jersey. This man will soon be out of prison and the minute he is, he will be re-elected.
    A classic example why our country needs:
    1. To get rid of democracy. Or rather, replace what we call democracy today with what we USED to have at the founding of our nation which was a “democracy of the aristocracy”. Only white men with land were allowed to vote.
    2. Replace our crony capitalism with national socialism. Only economic activity that is “good for white people” is allowed.
    3. Return “all men are created equal” to what it originally meant. All the descendants of Shem, the true Israelites that hold the duel covenants of Abraham and Christ….white people, are created equal and, as a group are supreme. All others are lesser people and not the priority in this nation.
    4. A day of rope for all evil people. Empty our prisons.
    5. Kick out all non-whites from our lands.

      Of course, it will be reelected after being sprung, if in fact, it must face actual consequences at all.
      Why not? White DWLs elected murderer Ted K., blacks reelected caught-on-tape Marion B., smoking crack with a ho.
      In the debauched world that has come to represent our politics, nothing surprises me anymore. As Sir Acton succinctly stated, “power tends to corrupt.” This is true more than ever with blacks, a species born with frontal lobe disconnect.
      As for “absolute power corrupts absolutely,” we need look no further than the Hussein/Holder strangle hold on the USA.

  • itdoesnotmatter

    What a shock! A black elected by blacks and assorted DWLs in trouble!
    Say it is not so.
    Handsome brute, eh? Not.

      The part of that thing’s head that contains the brain is tiny. I must wonder who put the clothes on it.

      • itdoesnotmatter

        Come to think of it, he looks a bit like Idi Amin.

    • IstvanIN

      that isn’t the mayor, that is Mighty Joe Young from the movies.

      • itdoesnotmatter

        Yes, that one too. I had forgotten about Mighty Joe Young.

  • Corto

    Whites who choose blacks to lead them are trash.

    • jeffaral

      I am thinking of the White people who voted for Hussein Obama.

  • jeffaral

    “Before voting for a black politician”. Why would anyone with a brain vote for a black politician???!!!!!

    • benvad

      Unless you’re inflicted by Stockholm syndrome.

  • Lee_CPA

    It’s really unfair to convict these black politicians/criminals over stuff like this. I equate it to “hunting over a baited field”.
    .
    Think about it. Someone with no impulse control gets elected to office and all of a sudden, they see money changing hands everywhere. What do you think is going to happen?
    .
    BTW, the “Editors Note” didn’t mention Atlanta’s Mayor Bill Campbell. They couldn’t make the bribery, racketeering, and corruption charges stick, but they did convict him of tax evasion.

  • judenjager

    He only got caught because the jew doesn’t like people muscling in on their action.
