Former 'mayor for life' is convicted; may be facing another trial

Former N.J. Sen. and Newark Mayor Sharpe James has been convicted for fraud. He is facing the distinct possibility of another trial for more problems.

At one time, "Mayor for Life" Sharpe James, as he was sometimes referred to, was considered the most-entrenched, most-unassailable power in the Garrden State. Today, he is another person wondering about what his future looks like in a Federal courtroom.

Corruption is an old song in New Jersey, and the tune is familiar to state residents. Sharpe James isn't the end of it. In my opinion, he's not even the end of the very beginning.
