The New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) has fined a former Hoboken mayor, his mayoral slate, and their campaign manager for allegedly not reporting more than $1 million in contributions.
According to the Nov. 13 New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission decision, former mayor Peter Cammarano III as well as running mates Angel Alicea, Raul Morales, Vincent Addeo, and campaign manager Lucy Truglio have been fined $95,330.
“The Respondents’ Joint Candidate Committee (‘JCC’) failed to timely report over $1,000,000 in runoff election transactions, and some of the required information was
still unreported as of the date of the court’s opinion. There are also charges of knowingly accepting excessive contributions,” states the decision.
This comes after Cammarano, who served for 22 days as mayor, was sentenced to two years in prison in 2010 after he reportedly accepted $25,000 in cash bribes. He was arrested three weeks into his term in 2009, and then-councilwoman Dawn Zimmer took over.
Cammarano was one of over 60 public officials apprehended as part of Operation Bid Rig, a statewide federal investigation into political corruption.
