"Trenton Mayor Is Arrested in Corruption Investigation"

From AP, as reported in The New York Times:

TRENTON — Federal agents arrested the mayor of Trenton on Monday as part of a corruption investigation into bribery allegations related to a parking garage project that was concocted as part of an F.B.I. sting operation.

. . .

The sting was similar to the “Bid Rig” sting that resulted in criminal charges against 46 people — many of them local officials — in 2009. Then, bribes were attached to fictitious development projects. Prosecutors have had mixed success in winning convictions.
