FBI: Sexual favors given out at League after parties

According to the APP, sexual favors were on the menu at N.J. League of Municipalities, held in Atlantic City. More than that, Monmouth officials, according to the FBI, partook in this. So why can't the voters know who these were? What protection should be offered to wayward officials seeking a good time on the taxpayer's dime.

I have never been an advocate for the League's events in Atlantic City. They lead to excess and are, essentially, taxpayer-paid junkits. Officials have told me that "important information" is passed at the events there. Personally, I know something productive may happen there, but by and large the excesses of those events really make it clear to me that these events should not exist. Maybe by changing the venue, or going with a major enforcement effort (complete with publicity). But right now we have a crop of politicians in this county who have gotten very used to a lifestyle that should not, in any way, be supported by the hard-earned tax money of this county's or these municipalities' voters.

In my opinion, the League is far from the organization ascribed in its mission statement. One word: Useless.

Click on the headline and try putting down the morning coffee. Good work by Bob Cullinane at the APP. Best story I've read in a long time.
