    NEWARK, N.J. - The mayors of two New Jersey cities and a state legislator were arrested Thursday in connection with a major corruption and international money-laundering conspiracy probe. Some of the suspects were also allegedly involved in an illegal human organ-selling ring.
    Among the approximately 30 people arrested were Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, who took office 23 days ago, Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, state Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt and Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark.
    An FBI spokesman told NBC affiliate WNBC that the investigation involved a "high-volume international money-laundering conspiracy."

    WNBC reported that some of the suspects also were accused of accepting cash payments that were taken to help find organs for sick patients in need of transplants. It was unclear where the body parts might have come from or how many surgeries may have been done.
    Several rabbis in New York and New Jersey were also taken into custody, federal prosecutors said.
    Cars were backed up four deep with suspects outside the FBI's Newark office.
    FBI and IRS agents were making the roundups in what is being described as one of the biggest investigations of its kind in state history, according to WNBC.
    The probe is said to have been launched when money transfers drew the interests of federal investigators.
    The Newark-based Star-Ledger newspaper reported that federal investigators removed at least three boxes of evidence from a Jewish school. A synagogue in Deal, N.J., was also searched.

    WNBC: New Jersey's scandal-plagued history


    Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who has fought corruption in New Jersey' largest city, says it's "an unbelievable morning so far."
    A news conference is scheduled for noon at the U.S. attorney's office in Newark.
    In recent years, New Jersey has seen more than 130 corruption-related convictions of public officials.
    Earlier this month, prosecutors alleged that Assemblyman Joseph Vas, a former Perth Amboy mayor, engaged in a scheme with a political adviser to funnel money through people who were given funds to make contributions.
    Vas had previously been accused of using his political influence to further a real estate deal that netted him nearly $300,000.

    Strange things are happening in the Garden State today..... Heard about this on 101.5 this AM. I have a feeling it's much deeper than this.

    I can't tell if you're being serious so... the Pine Barrens, farmland, lakes, mountains, along the Delaware River, etc etc etc.

    NJ is actually really, really nice. People just judge it by the Turnpike and cities (which are admittedly, crap).
