FBI Arrests Mayor of Trenton

The FBI has arrested Trenton, N.J., Mayor Tony Mack and seven other individuals as part of an ongoing corruption probe. Specific charges have not been announced, but they are expected to be detailed later on Monday. Mack’s administration has faced allegations of nepotism and reckless spending, and the mayor himself has faced questions about how he financed his campaign. In July, FBI agents raided Trenton City Hall, Mack’s home, and the home of one of his top campaign contributors. A former aide said: “This is not a surprise. A lot of people in Trenton were of the opinion—not of if, but when.”
