This is a great editorial from the APP. In my opinion, partisanship has become a luxury the New Jersey taxpayer cannot afford. Whether it is Essex County with its Democratic Machine or "machines" anywhere else, abuse of government office is a Garden State joke, and an old one. New Jerseyans often clearly see corrupt politicians in front of them, in full display, and do nothing. Perhaps the standard bearer for this idea is former Newark Mayor Sharpe James, once referred to by some people as "mayor for life" of the state's largest city.
It would be wrong to try Mr. James in the media, as I am sure a legal venue will work just fine.
