JERSEY CITY AND BEYOND – Former 2009 Jersey City mayoral candidate Louis Manzo was charged Friday by a federal grand jury in a second superseding Indictment for allegedly traveling to establish and facilitate a bribery scheme, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Louis Manzo is charged with two counts of violating the federal Travel Act for allegedly traveling twice in aid of bribery, in February and March 2009, and one count of allegedly concealing and not reporting federal offenses committed by others in connection with the scheme.

Manzo, a former assemblyman, was among the local officials snagged in a 2009 FBI sting operation in which prosecutors had a government informant offer bribes to politicians running for office.

Manzo was one of the few to speak out against the operation, holding a press conference last year to criticize it.
