Credit where credit is due

With New Jersey again being slammed as the perfect place for corrupt politicians to thrive its nice to know that not everyone is involved in shameless thievery. While I do not always agree with him I would like to take up a bit of space extolling the virtues of my local Assemblyman. The following is from our local paper The Home News Tribune.

MIDDLESEX COUNTY — Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) had a chance to do business with a man posing as a developer — if only he would mix his private law practice with public business.The temptation allegedly came in a telephone call from Assemblyman L. Harvey Smith (D-Hudson) on behalf of Solomon Dwek, who was posing as a developer, when in fact he was working undercover with federal officials.

When Smith was arrested last week, the criminal complaint filed against him referred to his effort to lure an unnamed "DOT Official" into the scheme.Wisniewski acknowledged that he is the "DOT Official."

Nice to know someone can say no. But I am still not voting for Jon Corzine. The rest at the link.
