FBI arrests mayors, other officials in bribe-Taking scandal

When the FBI swooped in and arrested 11 public officials—including the mayors of Orange and Passaic—the allegations included massive corruption and bribery. Following an 18-month investigation, the FBI said it had extensive evidence that public officials at all levels were taking bribes in exchange for help securing public contracts. Many of the alleged bribes involved roofing and insurance contracts.

Final note: Employers of all kinds should make sure that all employees understand they should never entertain any “offers” of help securing public contracts that involve the exchange of money or other items of value. Instead, train them to report any such offers directly to management so that the proper authorities can be informed.
