It's been almost two months since "corruption Thursday" - that day in July when 44 people, including many New Jersey political leaders, were led into federal court in handcuffs. Since that time, I hope New Jerseyans have not forgotten the shame and embarrassment these supposed leaders brought to our state. They have perpetuated a stereotype of New Jersey I have spent my life fighting, and they once again shattered what little trust the voters have in their elected officials. While political corruption is unfortunately an all-too-common occurrence in our state, I hope that these latest arrests - if only for their sheer magnitude - will motivate New Jerseyans to say, "Enough is enough."
