N.J. arrests.

44 nabbed. Watching CNBC (The DOW is above 9000 for the first time since January) and they just had some tid bits to tell. They were buying the kidneys for 10K and selling them for 160K.



Those arrested included:

Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano III, charged with accepting $25,000 in cash bribes from an undercover cooperating witness.

Assemblyman L. Harvey Smith, charged along with an aide of taking $15,000 in bribes to help get approvals from high-level state agency officials for building projects.

Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt, charged with accepting a $10,000 bribe.

Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, charged with taking a $10,000 bribe.

Ridgefield Mayor Anthony Suarez, charged with agreeing to accept a $10,000 corrupt cash payment for his legal defense fund.

Former Assemblyman Louis Manzo, charged with taking $27,500 in corrupt cash payments for use in his failed Jersey City mayoral campaign.

Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini, charged with taking $20,000 in illegal campaign contributions.

Eliahu Ben Haim, a rabbi at a synagogue in Deal, N.J., charged with money laundering.

Saul Kassin, the chief rabbi of a synagogue in Brooklyn, charged with money laundering.

Edmund Nahum, the principal rabbi of a synagogue in Deal, charged with money laundering.

Mordchai Fish, a rabbi at a synagogue in Brooklyn, charged with money laundering of proceeds derived from criminal activity. His brother Albert Schwartz, also a rabbi, was charged as well.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, the investigation initially focused, with the help of the cooperating witness, on a money-laundering network operating between Brooklyn, Deal and Israel. The network is alleged to have laundered tens of millions of dollars through charities controlled by rabbis in New York and New Jersey.

The organ trafficking allegedly involved patients paying middlemen to find willing donors in Israel. Investigators allege that the suspects had donors and patients lie to hospitals by saying that they were related. Hospitals would do the operation unaware that cash payments were part of the deal.
