Another Jersey Political Fund-Raiser in the Soup.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:36 pm

Charles Kushner, who was identified by the New York Post as Governor McGreevey’s “top fund-raiser,” was arrested on charges of obstructing the ongoing federal investigation into some of his activities, which include alleged tax fraud and the making of illegal campaign contributions.

More specifically, Mr. Kushner is charged with hiring a prostitute to have sex with a witness against him in the federal investigation and with using the surreptitiously taped sexual encounter as “leverage” against the witness. The videotape was ultimately sent to the witness’s spouse, who turned it over to federal authorities.

The witness on the videotape turns out to be Kushner’s brother-in-law, and the witness’s spouse, who was sent the videotape, is Kushner’s sister.

New Jersey politics – a seemingly bottomless cesspool.
