(Newser) – The FBI busted Trenton Mayor Tony Mack this morning on corruption charges, alleging that city government was paid $119,000 by a "purported developer" who wanted to build a parking garage on city property. A Mack supporter and local steakhouse owner was also arrested in the case, and the mayor's brother, a high school football coach, is due to be next, the Star-Ledger reports. The feds have been on the case, which involved a major wiretapping operation, since just after Mack took office in September 2010, the complaint says.

show me one part of government that isn't corrupt! The whole thing is just one huge fuckbowl of friends and relatives hiring each other for outrageous salaries and not doing shit turd #1 worth of value for it. Bring government salaries inline with the private sector, audit every government position for it's worth vs salary, and scrutinize every single government employee for their particular 'hiring circumstance' as well as performance. And do it to the degree my boss rides up my ass every fuckin day!
