The mayor of Trenton, New Jersey, Tony Mack, was arrested today in a corruption scandal that involves Mack allegedly receiving $119,000 in bribes. The money is linked to a city parking garage project, according to police.
Another arrest was also made in connection with the probe. Mack supporter Joseph Giorgianni, owner of JoJo’s Steakhouse, was arrested in his home. Mack’s brother, Ralphiel Mack, also surrendered to police.
“The investigation revealed evidence of a conspiracy among the defendants and other to corrupt certain functions of Trenton City government in favor of a purported developer seeking to building a parking garage on City-owned property in exchange for cash payments totaling approximate $119,000, a total of $54,000 that the defendants actually accepted in one way or another and another $65,000 that they anticipated accepting,” according to the complaint.
