New Jersey Court Clerk Charged in Bribery Case.

"A Newark municipal court clerk was charged yesterday with accepting bribes in exchange for altering a criminal record to allow someone to pass a federal background check, federal prosecutors said. The clerk, Louis March, 38, was charged in a criminal complaint by the F.B.I. with extortion under color of official right, said Christopher J. Christie, the United States attorney. Mr. Christie said Mr. March accepted $4,000 in cash from an undercover agent who was posing as the boyfriend of someone with a criminal record who needed to pass a background check to work at La Guardia Airport." The New York Times, March 14, 2007, at p. B6.

Did they get the 4 bills back from this guy? Or did the "suspect" keep the cash, allegedly, like Anthony Suarez, Esq.?

The cancer of corruption has so thoroughly devoured the institutions of the Garden State that this little episode produces no shock or surprise, only a bored "so what?" kind of reaction from readers. Most New Jersey Court Clerks are subject to influence. They have their favorites, usually attorneys from the big political firms and key judges. There are many favors granted and received, which are not specified in the rule books. Some are paid off, others are rewarded politically or in different ways. "How about a fruit basket?" Whores still make house calls at the courthouse, right? It must be a matter of professional courtesy for New Jersey judges. ("Deborah T. Poritz and Conduct Unbecoming to the Judiciary in New Jersey" and "Neil M. Cohen, Esq. and Conduct Unbecoming to the Legislature in New Jersey.")

Some New Jersey Supreme Court "justices" even get a free meal at one of the Casinos or at Rutgers University, as students' tuition rises beyond the reach of working class and poor students. Why should New Jersey Supreme Court "justices" making a measly $141,000 per year pay for their lunches? Let's be fair. It's only the rest of us who have to worry about such things. As a lawyer working on retainer for Jersey City at the time once explained "everything takes longer -- a lot longer! -- when you're getting paid by the hour." Right, Alex Booth? The same lawyer explained that he "had to bribe some politicians to get the contracts he wanted." Catching up with ya, Alex? "I'll watch your back."

Many municipal bodies granting zoning variances or other permits might as well publish the amounts needed to bribe officials and give away green stamps with every application. New Jersey judges and politicians should wear price tags indicating the amount necessary to bribe them. The preferred method of extorting bribes -- a bribe is something I never paid to any of the "Jersey Boys," which is one reason why they don't like me -- is through somebody who is "known" to the goons in political office. If they know the person, then you'll have a chance of delivering "the goods." How much does a zoning variance go for in North Bergen?

Does it still cost $2,000 -- make that "widgets" -- to get a variance approved in Union City, Bob? Still $800 to $1,000 for a driver's license from NJ's DMV made out in the name of your choice? $2,000 more recently? Has the price gone up? These things were reputedly (and allegedly) "common knowledge" ten years ago. My guess is -- and by reputation -- they still are. No lawyer can say this publicly. It's probably worse now. The North Bergen office of NJ's DMV was closed twice after arrests of employees taking bribes. I am told that things are worse now. "I have reason to believe" that these suspicions are accurate.

New Jersey Judges are "somebody's cousin" who is too stupid to make big money in the rackets, so the boys make him or her a judge. No wonder I seem to have all these problems with hackers tampering with what I write. I was told that a Superior Court judgeship could cost from $15 to $25 thousand in cash, or political contributions, after you have the "ten years in." As a "successful" and "ethical" New Jersey attorney explained. "They gotta get to know ya." More if you need to finesse the "Four-Way-Check." The public and members of the bar are not supposed to know about the "Four Way Check." Hey, how much does it cost to fix a personal injury case these days, allegedly? Any ideas, Jose?

As I write this on March 15, 2007 at 10:53 A.M., I am blocked from my own group at MSN, getting a "blank screen." What is? (I still can't change my profile image.)

Since I have defended the U.S. Constitution, along with America's cinematic imagination -- which creates what goes on many of the world's blank moviescreens -- this computer attack is a way of insulting not just me, but the United States. No wonder it probably comes from lawyers in New Jersey "affiliated" with one of the "family-like" groups running things. None of them want to debate me on philosophical, legal or political issues, so destructive efforts are what is left for them. Next they'll put in a call to "Cheech."

I wonder where Stuart Rabner went? Anybody seen him lately? Oh, wait ... he "demurs." How much trial experience at the Superior Court level does good old Stu have? None? No wonder he's the Chief Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court. Sadly, Stuart is an improvement over Debbie. Debbie likes the girls. I wonder whether there was a sexual relationship between Poritz and Riccioli? Shame on you, girls -- I mean, "women."

This particular municipal clerk is probably African-American or Latino, so they'll feed that person to the feds to show that the system is on the up-and-up (which it's not), then it's business as usual. Just ask Wayne R. Bryant, Esq. The problems in New Jersey are systemic and structural to the wider political process. Big money is the cancer in American politics. In New Jersey, money corrupting politics has become a plague.

The New Jersey Supreme Court is filled with mediocre (or worse) legal minds, indebted for their positions to a system of spoils and favors -- even Jim McGreevey says so! -- machine politics and party clubhouses, "contributions," and looking the other way. There are some notable exceptions in the state judiciary, which always caused me to wonder: "How did that person get to be a judge in New Jersey?"

I always tried not to hold a judgeship against a person I like. No matter how hard Trenton politicians try, they have been unable to fill the ranks of New Jersey's judiciary with morons. So far, only a majority of the judges may be described as less than Einstein-like in their intellects. I remember one guy who had never heard of "equitable contracts" -- admittedly, a contradictory term in New Jersey -- who liked to munch on his lunch while sitting at the bench with a bib tied around his neck. Alka-Seltzer, your Honor?

When theft of public money, hidden by the flimsiest devices, amounts to many millions -- even billions! -- of dollars and nothing happens. When nobody goes to prison for huge thefts of public money in New Jersey, people no longer take the system seriously. They shouldn't. It's a cruel joke. Busting people who accept bribes for a couple of thousand dollars is minimally effective. The ethics enforcement system in the form of the inept OAE (they only win because their proceedings are rigged), is worse, more corrupt, slimy, behind-the-scenes and off-the-record. Politics. It's all about politics. This is something else that can't be said publicly and won't be on the bar exam. You ever heard of "solicitation" of grievances being an "ethical offense" boys and girls? Nah, we're the OAE. We can do whatever we want. Debbie said so. Just supply Debbie Poritz with willing sexual partners, young women, and you can do what you like. It's probably much the same with Stuart Rabner on the job. ("Trenton's Nasty Lesbian Love-Fest!" and "Jennifer Velez is a 'Dyke Magnet!'")

To his credit, the current federal prosecutor, Chris Christie, is going after everybody, big and small, in the most disgustingly corrupt, organized crime venue in the United States -- New Jersey's legal system. Payback for speaking these truths is, usually, getting framed for something or assaulted. Not to mention the ongoing attempts to destroy my work and inflict further suffering on me. Friends say: "When the Democrats win the White House, they'll kill you!" It's possible. (Only one "error" inserted since the last time I read this essay?)

Knowing the Democrats, they'll kill the wrong person. By the way, this is not ethnically-based. There are plenty of Latinos and other ethnic groups represented in the organized crime factions controlling so much of New Jersey government and law. African-Americans are probably among the most honest people in New Jersey government because they have been denied power for so long. Big counties, like Camden, receiving millions in public money keep their records in "pencil." This makes erasing numbers easier. Next year they should try crayons.

The OAE is a joke, as I say, corrupt, idiotic and controlled by the people they should be controlling. Thank goodness, Senator Bob finally spoke out: "On the one hand," he said, "but then, on the other hand."

If you ever need to throw up, just think of New Jersey's legal system.

At a time when security is crucial, when the nation is at war and facing terrorist threats, people getting a job at an airport (with criminal records or who are in the country illegally) can get what they need in New Jersey with some cash. I know this makes me feel safer. By the way, the target is New York -- not New Jersey. We'll give them New Jersey. After a few weeks, they'll surrender and beg us to take New Jersey off their hands.

You make your way to Jersey, buy a driver's license, get a truck and visit a local K-Mart and you can drive a missile with enough explosive power to bring down a building. I hope security agencies are aware of these "options" for terrorists.

All the technology and security procedures in the world will not help with the problem of human greed, malice, corruption -- in other words, with New Jersey's legal system. What is required in New Jersey is effective law enforcement and somebody in the state system who will offer some assistance to Mr. Christie or his successors. Anne Milgram can't really offer that assistance -- unless she gets some help -- because she is totally "clueless." My question to the Dyke brigades is -- Do you really want to go out on a limb for Anne Milgram, Esq.? Anne has been lost on the Turnpike for years.

There are excellent and honest prosecutors in New Jersey, but they tend not to be the political people who get appointments to higher positions. I am expressing these opinions against a barrage of harassment and daily insults taking place before the eyes of the world. Nothing happens. (See "Chomsky Publisher Charged In Turkey" in the "politics" section and the "Publish America" episode in the "literature" section as well as all the essays in the "general" section at: )

Any insertions of typos or other errors in this essay will only verify what I am saying, which is something the morons in New Jersey probably haven't figured out yet. If they were smart, they wouldn't be New Jersey criminals. We shouldn't be surprised at their idiocies. ("New Jersey's Feces-Covered Supreme Court." and "Psychological Torture in the American Legal System" at Critique.)

I am told that some of the morons in judicial robes in New Jersey aren't doing so well today. Good.

Do what you can to help the feds stop this horror in New Jersey. Call the U.S. Attorney's Office with any information that you can provide concerning governmental corruption in the Garden State. I am sure they will protect your privacy. Is New Jersey's unofficial system of government and judiciary by organized crime what you wish to see in your children's future? I hope not.
