US corruption probe nets dozens
More than 40 people, including politicians, officials and several rabbis have been arrested in a major FBI operation the US.
Three mayors from the state of New Jersey and two members of the state legislature were among those held.
One man is accused of alleged kidney trafficking involving Israeli donors.
Three hundred FBI agents raided dozens of locations in New Jersey and New York as part of a 10-year probe into corruption and money laundering.
Prosecutors say the arrests were part of a "dual-tracked" investigation.
Acting US Attorney Ralph Marra told reporters there were 29 suspects on what he termed the "public corruption" side of the investigation, including the politicians.
Corruption is rife in the USA it's normally hidden from view and corrupt operations are camoflaged well. I think this orgainization is only just a tip of the iceberge as in my opinion is its embedded in main other states through out USA. Hopefully this orgainisation will be complete got rid of in the near future by the FBI and all concerned placed into jail where they really belong with the rest of USA's low life.
