Bryant Indicted on Corruption … Again.

September 28, 2010

Wayne Bryant with Joe Roberts, Lou Greenwald and John Adler

 

This may sound like a broken record but sadly it is not.  The Camden County Democrats are faced with yet another public corruption scandal.  

Yesterday, Wayne Bryant was indicted for corruption by the United States Attorney for allegedly taking bribes and misusing his official power relating to two South Jersey development projects; Camden’s Cramer Hill and Pennsauken’s Petty Island.  The public resistance to both projects was so intense and so focused it makes you wonder if the community activists who opposed the projects suspected corruption.  

The incitement specifically alleges the Camden County Democrat received, “… a stream of concealed bribes, kickbacks and payments in exchange for defendant WAYNE R. BRYANT’s  official action or inaction….”  

The indictment alleges Bryant was paid for legal services that neither he nor his firm performed.  In fact the complaint alleges “The Retainer Agreement did not specify how Defendant WAYNE R. BRYANT or the Cherry Hill Law Firm would be involved in the matters…”.  According to the indictment Bryant was paid $192,000.00 for his “involvement”  in this scheme.  

  

Again, where have we heard this before?  

In 2009 Bryant was convicted of bribery and pension fraud, and was sentenced to four years in federal prison.  The conviction related to a no-show job associated with the University of Medicine and Dentistry New Jersey (UMDNJ).  He is scheduled to be released from his current prison term in 2013.  

It will be interesting to see how the Camden County Democrats react to the indictment.  Will the condemn Bryant?  Will they ignore the indictment?  Will they support the Christie Ethical Reform plan?  Time will tell.

    What does this final line say about our twisted use of “Social Justice” in this country….

    “Meanwhile Wayne Bryant continues to collect his tax payer funded public pension while he serves time for pension fraud.”

    When will we learn? Why do we let this happen? This man corrupted his trust with us,tax payers. He used his elected position to enrich himself at the expense of us, tax payers. That is enough cause for us, tax payers…to STOP PAYING HIM!
