Rabbis, Mayors Arrested in Money Laundering Scam


What a chillul Hashem, and so wrong - FBI arrests dozens in corruption scandal:

The mayors of two major New Jersey cities and an assemblyman are under arrest Thursday as part of a major corruption and international money laundering conspiracy probe.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says approximately 30 arrests have occurred in the two-track investigation.

They include Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt, Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano III and Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell.

The federal prosecutor says arrests that are part of the money-laundering investigation include several rabbis in New York and New Jersey.
Why can't people learn to just do things right. Dishonesty/thievery among Rabbonim? What a great example they're setting.
